For blood building, for cleansing and for menstrual disorders
Angelica or Dang Gui is one of the top herbs for tonifying and building blood. It is used by millions of people to treat common anaemia as it can increase the red blood cell count. Angelica can be used after an illness, injury or surgery to rebuild red blood cells and to increase blood volume.
Angelica is known as the “queen of Chinese herbs” as it is used by women to build blood after a women’s menstrual period and for menstrual disturbances.
It is also used by men as a component of tonic formulations as a general blood builder.
Angelica has been found to benefit the complexion by improving circulation in the skin. It will detoxify the skin and so help to clear blemishes. Angelica can be used to assist healing of other skin problems, including urticaria, eczema, neurodermatitits, pruritus, vitiligo, rosacea, alopecia and pigment diseases.
