Tree peony (or shao-yao in Chinese) produces an acrid-tasting root that is the source of its health properties. It affects the sytems of the body that include the liver, the blood, the uterus, and the skin. It is classified as an alterative, an antispasmodic, and a hepatic tonic.
Peony root is a liver tonic and is almost always used together with licorice root for helping support many health issues stemming from an imbalanced liver function. It is also a good blood purifier, useful in supporting skin eruptions and infections.
Peony is very useful in supporting all female complaints, especially menstrual irregularity and abdominal pains associated with the menstrual cycle. It is nourishing to the blood and can be used to help support anemia.
