White Peony Root / Bai Shao
Why we love it
Known as the woman’s herb, White Peony is proven to reduce pain and cramping while promoting peaceful sleep during menstruation.
How it heals
In Chinese Medicine, White Peony Root nourishes the blood, calms the liver yang, and preserves yin, thereby regulating menses and alleviating pain throughout the body.
In Western medicine, White Peony Root reduces pain, stimulates the immune system, and prevents damage to the liver. Its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties also aid in blood flow.
Fun Fact: The peony is named after Paeon, a student of Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine and healing. When Asclepius became jealous of his pupil, Zeus saved Paeon from the wrath of Asclepius by turning him into the peony flower.
How we use it
“A peony is one plant you will enjoy for a long time. Peony plants can live to be 100 years old and still produce flowers.”
