Chrysanthemum Flower (Chrysanthemum morifolium) is consumed as a tea to nourish the Yin and as an herb to remove wind and heat from various areas of the body. Chrysanthemum Flower is one of the most commonly consumed herbs in Asia, consumed by millions of people every day as a delicious, satisfying health beverage that addresses many health issues that people face every day. Chrysanthemum is classified as a surface-relieving herb with Yin-nourishing properties. As a safe, delicious, time-tested “cooling herb” that disperses excess “heat” in the surface of the body, it has a thousand applications.
According to traditional Chinese herbal theory, its functions include nourishing Yin, dispersing ascending Yang, dispersing wind and heat (especially from the face, head and upper body), brightening the eyes, relieving dry eyes (with or without tearing), relieving headaches, calming the liver and clearing liver heat. Chrysanthemum Flower is renowned for clearing the skin. Chrysanthemum is also used in Asia to clear the mind. Consuming a relaxing cup of Chrysanthemum tea at bedtime is believed to improve one’s memory. For mental workers and students, it can help prevent or relieve migraines and headaches caused by too much thinking, reading, stress and computer work. Consumed during the day or in the evening, it helps relieve stress and tension. You may consult with your certified herbalist for other specific uses of this tea.
