A Potion for Silky Skin and Deep Sleep

Jade Magic

This elixir recipe is based on the “Jade Magic Formula” originally created by the renowned Qing Dynasty herbalist Wang Meng-Ying (1808-1866) to quickly replenish Heart Blood. It consists of 10 parts Longan and 1 part American Ginseng.

Longan is a major Blood tonic. It provides nourishment to the skin while American Ginseng is highly regarded for its ability to promote the secretion of body fluids, thereby keeping the skin moist and supple.

American Ginseng is a major Lung tonic and Yin tonic. It is cool in nature. American Ginseng balances out Longan’s warmth, making this recipe neutral and suitable for most people.

This Longan & American Ginseng dream team is also great for promoting deep refreshing sleep. It is especially beneficial for people who suffer from insomnia as a result of Heart Blood deficiency. The combination is adaptogenic, meaning it will improve alertness and mental clarity during your working hours, and it will help you relax and clear your mind at bedtime.

With nourishment, moisture and beauty sleep, we can now attain beauty that is NOT just skin deep.
