Aranda Peng Lee Yeoh - Used in Woody 7 (Women) for Team building Perfume workshop
A Hybrid and non-native but it was a great find for us. As local Orchid nursery states- This hybrid was registered by Yeoh Bok Choon on 1st January, 1966. Aranda Peng-Lee Yeoh has a distinct vanilla fragrant that children frequently recognize this flower to be ‘chocolate orchid’.

Therapeutic Orchid notes:
Dendrobium capillipes Rchb. f.
Chinese name: Duanbang Shihu
It is distributed from Nepal and Northeast India to Yunnan, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia
Phytochemistry: Scoparone (6,7-dimetho xycoumarine) which is present in D. capillipes has vasodilatory effects on the rat aorta.
Phytohaemagglutinin stimulates white blood cells to undergo rapid replication and the process is used in the laboratory for chromosomal analysis. Scoparone suppressed the response of human mononuclear cells. Scoparone also stimulates dopamine biosynthesis by PC12 cells which are nerve cells from a pheochromocytoma (tumour) of the rat adrenal medulla. Dopamine is an important chemical messenger of the brain. Loss of dopamine-secreting cells in the brain is thought to be a cause of Parkinson’s disease.
Herbal Usage: It is used as shihu.
