This formulation was created specifically for dry, itchy skin conditions and was adapted from a classic formula called Zhi Yang Run Fu Gao.  Zi Dang Gao acts as the base for this formulation and is composed of two of my favorite herbs to nourish dryness and help the skin heal:  dang gui and zi cao (or arnebia/lithospermii radix).  I've written about zi cao before (here's a link to our blog post about it!!), it's one of the herbs that brings the brilliant red/pink coloration to several of our salves and oils.  Combined with dang gui, an herb that helps move blood, this pair helps bring new blood to the surface of the skin helping heal and nourish in situations of dryness where movement of fluids may be impaired.  

The actions of these two herbs are augmented by other herbs that help clear a bit of heat, soothe irritation and unblock the channels to dispel damp and help alleviate that surface discomfort often associated with dry, itchy skin irritations.  This is a great choice for dry skin conditions that are accompanied by itching and a bit of heat!!

Ingredients:  organic sesame oil, organic beeswax, dang gui rhizome (dang gui), processed flowering knotweed root (he shou wu), arnebia root (zi cao), dahurian angelica root (bai zhi), turmeric (jiang huang), violet leaf (zi hua di ding), prepared rehmannia root (shu di huang), licorice root (gan cao), red peony root (chi shao), baical skullcap root (huang qin).
