Biota seed – To open the heart and calm the mind

Biota_Seeds_Bai_Zi_Ren_NEW_PIC_IMG_2972What I most love about biota seed is that it helps to open your heart.

“When the heart opens, we forget ourselves and the world pours in: this world, and also the invisible world of meaning that sustains everything that was and ever shall be.” – Roger Housden

It’s often combined with other heart herbs like asparagus root, reishi mushroom, and ophiopogon.  Lion Heart Herbs Serenity formula has a blend of that kind, with biota seed as one of the main ingredients.

Biota is also a mind-calming herb with a mildly sedative effect.  If you’re the kind of person who has mental chatter going on all the time, this is a good herb to try.

As a mild spleen tonic, biota is good for the digestion.  I only tend to use it as a shen tonic in my own formulations because it’s most powerful for that purpose.

I recommend that you use a shen tonic formulation like Lion Heart Herbs Serenity but if you make your own, it’s definitely worth including biota.
