Bupleurum is a member of the Apiaceae family of plant and the roots of this perennial are bright yellow. Preparations containing the roots of Bupleurum species have been prescribed for more than 2000 years in China where the first record about their use appeared in Shen‐Nong’s Herbal. Known as a “harmony herb” in Chinese medicine, the root of this herb is a customary ingredient in one of the most common Chinese formulas for helping people who feel wound up, frustrated, tense, depressed and angry – “Free and Easy Wanderer”.
In Chinese medicinal philosophy, Bupleurum helps strengthen the liver and allows for a free flow of blood and energy to circulate in the body and not get bound up and stagnant. In TCM, the liver is associated with the emotion of anger, and Bupleurum helps disperse heat from the liver and associated toxic anger. Bupleurum was widely known in Korea and Japan for the treatment of fever, pain and inflammation associated with influenza and the common cold.
The taste and energetics of Bupleurum are bitter, spicy, pungent, cooling and astringent. This root has an affinity towards the digestive system, liver, gallbladder, nervous system, digestive system, and endocrine system.
1 teaspoon of Bupleurum Root to one cup of boiling water. Simmer for 15minutes, strain and drink up to three cups a day.
