Music For Acupuncture

 I have been practicing acupuncture for almost 20 years now and I most always play music during treatments.  I found it difficult to find appropriate music so for my own sanity I made CD’s using computers and a few instruments (flutes, guitar, erhu, violin).
Each of the CD’s is one hour long.

Kirsten Cowan, the creator of Angelica & Peony writes: “I started making facial serums a few years ago, when I couldn’t find a simple moisturizer I liked – they were either full of chemicals, or they smelled rancid. By using superbly high quality oils, I developed a skin care product that my face loved, and I began to share it with friends and family who asked about the delicious smelling bottles in my bathroom.

&

My first priority is the quality and safety of my ingredients. I use certified organic, wild-crafted and/or sustainably harvested products, mostly from Mountain Rose Herbs, which is located in Eugene, Oregon. I also source some of my essential oils from Divine Essence, a French Canadian company with uniquely high quality oils and a real commitment to people and planet. They are certified by ECOCERT, a French organization created to provide meaningful certification for ecologically and economically just cosmetic ingredients.

Chinese herbs used in creating my infused healing oils come from Mayway, a family-owned business in Oakland that provides scrupulous quality control and excellent relationships with their farmers in China. It’s my goal to progress to using locally grown herbs, but North American Chinese herb farming is still a relatively new industry. Stay tuned!

I use glass bottles and jars, never plastic – inert, recyclable, and they look nice!

Love,

Kirsten, CEO, Angelica & Peony”

About this formula: the mention of the “Tai Shan”, or “great mountain” is an image of stability in Chinese culture like the “Rock of Gibraltar” is used by a financial services firm to promote stability.

“Instability” is how Chinese medicine refers to a tendency toward miscarriages. Those who benefit the most from this formula are fatigued and weak as a rule. There may be a pale complexion and lack of appetite as well.

Tang-Kuei and Arctium Formula (xiao feng san)

Details of Tang-kuei and Arctium Formula
Dang gui helps nourish the "Liver blood", or neurotransmiters.

Dang gui helps nourish the "Liver blood", a precursor to skin moisturizing oil.

Alternative Names

  • Wind Dispersing Powder
  • xiao feng san
  • hsiao feng san
  • syuhu san
  • shofusan

This formula does four things that all support healthy skin. They work together to address the internal organs as well as the external skin.

The four treatment principles inherent in this formula include the following:

  1. Nourish the blood to moisturize the skin.
    • This is often the root cause of rashes or dry skin. “Nourishing the blood” doesn’t necessarily mean that you have anemia. The secretions of oil in the skin are considered a subset of the blood. So dry skin is addressed through the blood.
  2. Extinguish wind to eliminate itching.
    • When “wind” is said to enter the skin, it may produce the sensation of an insect crawling on the skin, or simply cause itching. This formula includes a few herbs to “extinguish wind” for this reason.
  3. Dry damp to address wet or weeping rashes.
    • Dampness arises from a fluid metabolism disregulation in the body. When you are humid inside, it is easy for oozing rashes and sores to arise in your skin. Some itchy rashes also feel wet after you scratch them. This too is dampness.
  4. Clear heat to protect the blood and remove redness.
    • Whenever we see redness on the body, we assume that there is “heat” involved. Usually red things are warm to the touch too. So, another goal with red rashes is to locate the heat and remove it.

Agastache Formula (Huo Xiang Zheng Qi San)

Details of Agastache Formula

Patchouli settles the stomach by “piercing turbidity”.

I find this is the “go-to” formula for most forms of nausea. It is often used for pregnant women (although of course a doctor should be consulted for unremitting or serious nausea – pregnant or not). But for the run of the mill, “not feeling so great”  nausea after a greasy meal etc… I go for this (or some fresh ginger in water).

Also, this is a great formula to have on-hand for the cold and flu season. It excels in settling the stomach when a common cold or flu is aggravated by nausea. One thing, traditionally this formula is only used for “wind-cold” not “wind-heat”. Each of these conditions include chills and fever, however for the best outcomes with this formula, use it when you have more chills than fever (or equal amounts of chills and fever). If you only have fever, consider something else such as Lonicera and Forsythia Formula

Alternative Names
