Refill with Expensive Herbs

Details Of This Page

We often fulfill and create Custom Formulas. This page is for some of those special formulas that have a big percentage of expensive herbs in them. in other words, some times a person will request a formula that’s total cost will be eaten up or exceed our cost in creating it. When these are herbs in our standard formulas we can take the hit because they are usually only a small percentage of the total.

So thats the nitty gritty: I know these are expensive but things aren’t getting cheaper…

Those herbs include:

  • Chuan Bei Mu
  • Xi Yang Shen
  • Ren Shen
  • San Qi
  • Tai Zi Shen
  • E Jiao
  • Mei Gui Hua
  • Hong Shen
  • Ling Zhi Bao Zi
  • Ma Bo
  • Tian Ma
  • Pang Da Hai
  • Cong Lou
  • Zhu Ling
  • Ban Xia
  • Jin Yin Hua
  • Chan Ci Gu
  • Sha Ren

Gentle Mover

Details of Gentle CHO

The first three herbs in this formula move the blood. Ze Xie promotes downward draining. Therefore this formula should taken with some degree of caution for those on blood thinners such as Coumadin (warfarin sodium) and similar products. These herbs are also said to support healthy cholesterol levels.

Yuan Hu Zhi Tong

This formula is basically Yuan Hu Suo with one added herb, Bai Zhi. The addition gives it a little extra “kick” to move it upwards and and outwards and into the smaller collaterals. For that reason it is often used for headaches and upper spine.

Yan Hu Suo (Corydalis yanhusuo) is an herb that is effective for pain. Apparently scientists at UC Irvine have found that the roots of Yan Hu Suo (which has been used for thousands of years for pain in China) contains a compound called dehydrocorybulbine (DHCB). Who knew!? They call this type of research Neuropharmacology. This research was done on rodents so animals were harmed, so be forewarned.

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.
These are not downloads. You will receive an actual object in the mail.

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”

Although our focus has always been and always will be selling herbs, we thought we would sell some other products.
The first among these are two facial lotions made by my friends at Angelica & Peony in Oakland, California.
