The Story

Dong Quai: Angelica sinensis (Oliv.) Diels 

Why dong quai? Dong quai is a fragrant, perennial herb native to China, Korea, and Japan. Don quai’s beneficial reputation is second only to ginseng in the West. This restorative herb is commonly associated with supporting gynecological health, specifically menstruation and menopause.

This herb is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and grown without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Our experts here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally evaluate every herb through taste, touch, and smell to assure that you are receiving the best botanicals suitable for clinical use.

How to Use

Dong quai root is often used to support gynecological health including healthy energy levels during menstruation, a normal menstrual flow, and an overall healthy and normal female reproductive system.

Experience

Formula:

DONG QUAI DECOCTION:

Dong quai Angelica sinensis root (dried): ½ ounce

Purified Water: 8 ounces 

Place the water into a saucepan made from a non-reactive material (such as stainless or enamel). Do not use aluminum. 

Cut or crush the herb or root right before you add it to water in the saucepan. Do not cut or crush in advance, as vital constituents can be lost. 

Turn on the heat to medium.

Simmer your decoction with the lid off until the volume of water is reduced by one quarter, so three-quarters of a pint remains. 

Cool and strain.

Decoctions are intended for immediate use, so store for a maximum of 72 hours in the refrigerator. 

Take ½ an ounce of decoction daily.
