It has continuously remained one of the most commonly used and respected herbal combinations in the world. It has been consumed by billions of people. The formula, which is a fifty-fifty combination of Chinese Licorice root and Chinese White Peony root, has profound and safe muscle relaxing and blood detoxifying capacity and is suitable for old and young, male and female.
Soothing Combination relaxes both smooth and striated muscle. It can be used as a tonic tea by those practicing yoga and other sports. It can also be used as temporary relief by those experiencing transient muscle tension, spasmodic pain, muscle cramps, back tension, back spasms, menstrual cramps, abdominal cramps, hand and foot cramps, calf cramps and so on. Both Chinese Licorice root and White Peony root have innate muscle relaxing capacity, but when they are combined in a brewed formula their power is magnified. This herbal extract was produced by brewing the two herbs together for some hours so that their chemistry could blend. Both herbs, as well as the combination tea-extract, are safe tonic herbs when consumed occasionally and in moderation. The amount of Licorice root in this formula is considered safe so long as it is consumed as directed. It is an excellent formula to have on hand.
