LINIMENT: Plum Dragon - Herbal Ice 4 oz

Type: Injury Liniment

Made from the San Huang San formula!

San Huang San is a combination of 3 cooling herbs that effectively alleviate pain and inflammation in injuries. Unlike the ice pack that is used in Western settings, these 3 herbs help increase local circulation to break stasis, while cooling energy reduces heat and pain, helping accelerate and smooth the natural healing process. Try applying this liniment instead of ice and see the difference!

***Please note that the “cooling” herbs do not feel cool to the skin, but are categorized as “cooling” in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The Herbal Ice formula is meant to be used in place of ice on a fresh injury to help the injury heal faster, not to “FEEL” like ice. Ingredients, such as camphor and menthol, added to other formulas to make them “FEEL” like ice are, in our opinion, not helpful to the body. The function of camphor and menthol are to trick the nerves of the skin so that they cannot send pain signals in the normal way. The “icy” feeling you get is actually the sensation of those ingredients overwhelming the nerves of the skin. If you want to heal your injury faster, use the herbal ice, but do not expect an “icy” feeling. If you want to just cover up the pain and trick your body, use other products containing camphor and menthol, but do not expect faster healing.***

Additionally, we add 1 extra yellow which assists the original recipe by increasing local circulation to reduce stagnation from bleeding (hematoma): The Plum Dragon Herbs 4 yellows Herbal Ice formula is born!

To use Herbal Ice liniment, cover the injury with liquid and rub into skin. Repeat as often as needed to manage pain and swelling.

San Huang San reduces swelling while increasing circulation aiding in the restoration of normal movement and function quickly; reduces pain and stiffness without stagnation of the affected area. The herb formulation helps limit inflammation without prohibiting the production and distribution of the Insulin Growth Factor which supports the bodyŐs natural immune response that is needed for rapid recovery.

Anytime you have a fresh injury with significant swelling and inflammation, or if you have tightness, sensitivity, and reduced range of motion, San Huang San should be one of the first things you consider using. - Greg Johnston, LAc
