Trauma Tincture for Acute Injury

 

An extraordinary topical tincture based on ancient martial arts formulas designed to treat acute injuries. Traditionally called “hit & fall wine,” each school of martial arts closely guarded their own secret recipe handed down through generations of masters.

The medicinal herbs are extracted in alcohol to quickly penetrate the skin and easily access deeper tissues.

Herbal Ice Salve to Reduce Inflammation

 

An injury to the body causes a disruption in the flow of qi and blood at the site of injury. Local inflammation further stagnates qi and blood, resulting in pain and swelling. Ice can help reduce inflammation and pain, but at a cost. Ice contracts blood vessels and tissues, which impedes local circulation. The resulting congealed blood and fluids can greatly slow the healing process. This blockage can then disrupt the flow of qi and blood along the course of energy meridians and the circulatory system, causing pain and weakness in distant areas of the body. This Herbal Ice Salve is based on an herbal poultice formula used for centuries by martial arts masters to treat injuries.

The cooling medicinal herbs reduce inflammation while simultaneously improving circulation to disperse congealed blood and fluids.

Indications: Expedites healing from injuries, sprains, strains, contusions.

 

Ingredients: rhubarb root, skullcap root, phellodendron bark, dandelion leaf, gardenia fruit, safflower, myrrh, frankincense, daemonoropis resin, angelica sinensis root, sweetgum fruit, sweet almond oil, beeswax

 

Directions: For topical use. Apply to injured area. For best results, massage Trauma Tincture onto area, then immediately apply Herbal Ice Salve.

Herbal Salve Collection

 

Let’s imagine an eventful day… You go on a hike in the woods to forage mushrooms. You see some beauties under a tree and scramble up the little hill to get them. After you fill your basket, you notice that you had walked through poison oak to get to that tree. You take a different route back to the path, and step on a root which twists your ankle uncomfortably. You decide to head home. As you make your way back on the path, you notice the arthritis in your knee acting up because you are compensating for the ankle. At home, as you are sautéing the fresh mushrooms, you touch the hot pan and burn your hand. Yikes! What a day! The good news is that this day is imaginary.

Warming Digestive Tea

 

Optimal digestion is of utmost importance to overall health. Proper digestion transforms the food and drink we consume into the metabolic processes of life. In Chinese Medicine, digestion is described as a pot simmering over a fire, in which food and drink are cooked and decomposed in a distillation process that separates the pure from the impure. The pure substances then generate matter and activate energy, and the impure is excreted. In other words, nutrients are absorbed, and toxins are eliminated. Essential to this process is the warmth from the fire. This unique herbal blend stokes the digestive fire to warm the belly pot and promote healthy digestion.

Indications: Strengthens digestive function for those who experience indigestion, gas, bloating, heartburn, nausea.

 

Ingredients: ginger root, cinnamon twig, licorice root, turmeric, fennel seed, toasted barley, date fruit, hawthorne berry, amomum fruit

 

Directions: Steep 1 bag in hot water in your teacup or teapot. Refill with hot water to enjoy 8~12 cups with each tea bag. Or simmer 1 bag and 8~12 cups water in a covered pot for 20 minutes, and reheat as needed to drink.

Boost Immuni~Tea

 

Three of the herbs included in this tea comprise an ancient Chinese formula to prevent cold and flu, called Jade Windscreen Formula. Two characters in the name denote a screen used to protect the inside of a room against wind. The character for jade was added because this formula was considered to be as valuable as jade. In Chinese Medicine, cold and flu result from an invasion of external wind pathogens. The Protective Qi circulates at the body surface and regulates the opening and closing of the pores to guard against wind invasion. This unique herbal blend strengthens immunity by building up the Protective Qi to fortify the exterior defense of the body.

Indications: Strengthens immune function for those who experience colds and flus once or more per year, or for whom colds and flus last longer than one week. This medicinal tea should be taken when well. Do NOT take during a cold or flu.
