Dong Quai Root balances the female hormone system thus it can help relieve symptoms of either overproduction of estrogen (endometriosis, heavy or painful periods), or underproduction of estrogen (menopause symptoms). It is a blood purifier and tonic and improves blood circulation. I like to combine this herb with kelp capsules for full body balance. If you recognize the flower it’s Angelica an “old time” plant used as candy. The variety here is Angelica sinsenis.
