Product Description

White Peony Root C/S

Also Known As – Paeonia lactiflora

Certified Organic USA

Overview - Peony is a plant. The root and, less commonly, the flower and seed are used to make medicine. Peony is sometimes called red peony and white peony. This does not refer to the color of the flowers, which are pink, red, purple, or white, but to the color of the processed root.

Medicinal Uses - Peony is used for goutosteoarthritis, fever, respiratory tract illnesses, and cough. Women use peony for menstrual crampspolycystic ovary syndromepremenstrual syndrome (PMS), and for starting menstruation or causing an abortion. It is also used for viral hepatitisliver cirrhosisupset stomach, muscle cramps, “hardening of thearteries” (atherosclerosis), and to cause vomiting. Peony is also used for spasms,whooping cough (pertussis), epilepsynerve pain (neuralgia), migraine headache, and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).

People apply peony to the skin for healing cracked skin, especially cracks around theanus (anal fissures) that sometimes occur with hemorrhoids.

Peony Root Uses: 

  • Skin wrinkles. Peony contains a chemical called paeoniflorin. Early research suggests that applying a specific cosmetic product containing 0.5% paeoniflorin for 8 weeks might reduce facial wrinkles.
  • Muscle cramps.Early research suggests that taking a specific combination of peony and licorice (Shakuyaku-kanzoh-to) might ease muscle cramps in people with liver cirrhosis and in people undergoing hemodialysis.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Early research suggests that taking a product containing peony along with the drug methotrexate for 3 months might reduce test markers of swelling in people with RA better than taking methotrexate alone. However, taking this peony product with methotrexate does not appear to improve symptoms of RA better than methotrexate alone.
  • Gout.
  • Osteoarthritis.
  • Breathing problems.
  • Cough.
  • Skin diseases.
  • Hemorrhoids.
  • Heart trouble.
  • Stomach upset.
  • Spasms.
  • Nerve problems.
  • Migraine headache.

Precautions - Peony is SAFE when used by mouth, short-term. Peony has been used safely for up to 4 weeks. It can cause stomach upset. It can cause rash when it comes in contact with the skin of sensitive people.

Special Precautions & Warnings: Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Peony is POSSIBLY UNSAFE when taken by mouth during pregnancy. Some developing research suggests that peony can cause uterine contractions. However, other research suggests a combination of peony and angelica might be safe. Until more is known, don’t use peony if you are pregnant. Also avoid peony if you are breast-feeding. Not enough is known about the safety of using peony if you are nursing.

Bleeding disorders: Because peony might slow blood clotting, there is a concern that it might increase the risk of bleeding in people with bleeding disorders. Don’t use it if you have a bleeding disorder.

Surgery: Peony might slow blood clotting, so there is a concern that it could increase the chance of bleeding during and after surgery. Stop using peony at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.

Preparation - Teas, tinctures, encapsulations, almost always used with other herbs.
