Used in Chinese medicine, Dong Quai Root C/S is one of their “go-to” herbs for female issues related to menstrual cycles. There are also current studies that are researching the benefits of this root towards diabetes as well as combating excessive weight gain. Generally, Dong Quai Root C/S is used in herbal tea blends to achieve these reported benefits. It is advised that women avoid using this herb during pregnancy.
Dong Quai applied topically, has provided some people relief from common skin conditions like eczema, rosacea, and hives. It seems to have a positive effect on circulation which can help promote healing, as the blood circulates through the layers of the skin.
If you wish to extract the benefits into your beauty care recipe, simply steep this herb in either oil or water, much like you would a tea. Once it has “released” then strain and use the retained portion inside your formulations.
