TCM Actions: Unblocks all three yang levels, sedates and calms the spirit.*
We have modified the TCM formula Chai Hu Jia Long Gu Mu Li Tang with California Poppy, Milky Oats, Western Pasque Flower, and Skullcap. Both Skullcap and California Poppy clear heat from the Heart and Liver and are suitable for excess or deficiency syndromes. Both herbs resolve stagnation of the Liver-Gallbladder and may be useful for patterns involving preoccupation and nervousness. Milky oats are used traditionally to nourish the nervous system, while Western Pasque Flower is rapidly settling and grounding.*
