Qualities
White Peony root is a famous and highly prized tonic herb used to build 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, to help regulate menstruation and to improve the quality of the skin. Men use it as a blood tonic as well. White Peony is commonly combined with Dang Gui, Rehmannia, Ligusticum and other blood tonics.

White Peony is also used to relax muscles, both striated and smooth. It is said to relieve cramps and spasms anywhere in the body. But in particular, it is considered to be very highly effective in relieving menstrual cramps, cramps in the gastrocnemius and in the feet. White Peony contains components which make it an effective pain-reducing agent. White Peony has a calming effect and is widely used as an emotional stabilizer, especially by women. When combined with Licorice root, White Peony’s anti-spasmodic, analgesic qualities are magnified. This combination is better than the sum of the parts.

White Peony root is considered to be one of China ’s premium antiaging herbs and is very widely used to promote beauty. It purifies the blood which in turn purifies the skin. There is an old Chinese saying that “a woman who consumes White Peony root every day becomes as beautiful as the Peony flower itself”. The Peony flower is the national flower of China and the symbolism of the statement illustrates how effective the Chinese believe White Peony root is in generating beautiful skin and radiant health. Women who use White Peony for an extended period of time find that their skin becomes finer, smoother, softer and cleaner. The skin develops a soft radiance that looks young and alive. For beautiful skin, White Peony root is usually combined with other anti-aging, beauty-enhancing herbs such as Dang Gui, Pearl, Placenta, Schizandra, Astragalus, Royal Jelly, Asparagus root, Gynostemma, etc.

Primary Combinations
White Peony is always used in combination with other tonic herbs.
Combine with:

  1. Dang Gui, Rehmannia and Ligusticum to build blood, regulate the female hormonal system, relieve menstrual pain
  2. Licorice Root to relieve spasms and cramps in the gastrocnemius, feet and internal organs, especially the pelvic organs and digestive tract
  3. Dang Gui, Schizandra, Pearl, Longan and Coix to clear the complexion and beautify the skin
  4. Bupleurum to cleanse the Liver

Varieties and Grading
The best quality White Peony root is said to come from the Eastern region of Hangzhou. It is now known that the chemistry of White Peony grown near Hangzhou is richer than that of other sources. Good White Peony is smooth and though it is fundamentally white, it will have a pink hue. Larger pieces are always considered best.

Contraindications
Since the herb is cold, it should be used cautiously in cases of excess cold or deficiency of Yang.
