Details of Top Quality Lindera Powder
Mu Xiang is an aromatic wood that regulates the nervous system’s pain sensitivity.

Notes: this particular formula has been modified for the treatment of lower back discomfort, middle back discomfort, lower abdominal discomfort or discomfort in the scrotum that is improved by warmth and/or aggravated by cold. Some report a sensation of cold associated with this kind of pain, others describe a pulling or twisting sensation in the testicles that can arise quite suddenly while enjoying lunch with friends in a public restaurant leaving you unable to rearrange things downstairs, though when you finally are able to surreptitiously shift the contents in your pants, you find that it didn’t even help — but I digress…

Alternative Names

  • tian tai wu yao san


Wu Yao 烏藥 lindera root Radix Linderae Strychnifolii

  • Whenever you see the name of an herb in the title of a Chinese medicine formula, it means that this herb is crucial to the formula and knowing the herb well enables one to understand the goals of the formula. This particular herb is warming and moving and favors the lower abdomen. That means it addresses uncomfortable twisting sensations in the scrotum or lower abdomen due to “cold in the liver channel”. This kind of pain is often aggravated by cold, but can arise quite suddenly without any apparent exposure to cold.

Mu Xiang 木香 costus root, saussurea, auklandia Aucklandiae Radix

Xiao Hui Xiang 小茴香 fennel fruit Foeniculi Fructus [use caution if pregnant]

Qing Pi 青皮 unripe tangerine peel, green tangerine peel, blue citrus Citri reticulatae viride Pericarpium

Gao Liang Jiang 高良姜 lesser galangal rhizome, galanga Alpiniae officinarum Rhizoma

  • The four herbs listed above are all warm to address cold sensations in the Liver channel as it passes through the scrotum and lower abdomen. They also stimulate the movement of Liver qi which is essentially regulating the nervous system that is generating muscle spasms in the lower back or abdomen when induced or aggravated by stress, impatience, frustration, or anger.

Da Fu Pi – Areca Peel

  • Promotes the Qi to move downward.  Reduces stagnation thus helping with food stagnation and obstructed qi such as abdominal distention, belching, acid regurgitation and constipation.

(Bing Lang 檳榔 betel nut; areca seed; areaca Semen Arecae Catechu [use caution if pregnant]  is used traditionally but is NOT available in our formula. Instead we have substituted Da Fu Pi, which is the peel of the betel nut and has much of the same actions. Bing Lang regulates the nervous system in the lower abdomen, but helps to keep the intestines moving too as a gentle treatment for constipation which can arise along with discomfort in the lower back or abdomen.)

Chuan Lian Zi 川楝子 toosendan fruit, Sichuan chinabery, Sichuan Pagoda tree Meliae Toosendan Fructus

  • Chuan Lian Zi is another herb to stimulate the flow of qi (or regulate the nervous system), but it is designed for those with a deficiency constitution. This is helpful for those defined at the Eagle Herbs website as “delicate” or “slightly delicate“. [Take the test]

Xiang Fu – Cyperi

  • invigorates qi in the lower jiao (genital area) We use this instead of Li He Zhi which is very hard to get.

Ju He 橘核 Tangerine Pip (seeds) Sm. Citri Reticulatae

  • These two herbs are added to the classic formula to increase it’s potency. They’re basically barking up the same tree as the Wu Yao described above. They’re warm, activating (for stagnated qi), and enter the liver channel (scrotum and lower abdomen, and low to middle back). So they support the goals of Wu Yao in addressing a pulling, spastic, or tugging sensation in the testicles and lower abdomen.
