White peony root

Peony root is a famous and highly prized blood tonic used to relax muscle and cleanse the blood. It is one of the most highly prized women's herbs used traditionally to help regulate the female hormonal cycle and to tonify and purify the blood. It is also used as a pain reducing agent and as an emotional stabilizer by women. It is said to relieve cramps and spasms anywhere in the body. In particular, it is considered to be highly effective in relieving menstrual cramps. Peony root is also believed to extend life and to promote beauty. An old Chinese saying states that "a woman who consumes Peony root regularly becomes as beautiful as the Peony flower itself." Men should use Peony as well, since it has an antiaging effect without effecting hormones.

The effects of White Peony include nourishing the blood, regulating menstruation, reinforcing yin with astringent action to stop sweating, nourishing the liver pain and suppressing the liver-yang.

Pain in the hypochondrium, stomach and abdomen due to disorder of the liver-qi or spasm and pain in the extremities.

For hyperactivity of the liver-yang marked by headache and vertigo, it is often used along with dried rehmannia root, achyranthes root and red ochre, as in Sweeping Down Decoction for Hypertension(Jianling Tang).

Medicinal virtues: The roots have more virtues than the seed, next the flowers, and then the leaves. The root is washed, crushed and infused for at least 24 hours. It is then strained and a good draught taken morning and evening for several days. This will cure the falling-sickness in old as well as young, if the disease be not of too long standing and past cure. The body can be prepared by taking ale drink-posset made of Betony. The root or the seed beaten to a powder, and given in wine, is effectual for cleansing the womb after childbirth and easing the mother. Taken morning and night, the black seed is effectual for nightmare and melancholy dreams. The distilled water or syrup made of the flowers works the same, but more weakly.
