Non-Sulfur Treated Herbs
Ju Hua/Chrysanthemum has many purported medicinal uses, including an aid in recovery from influenza and acne and as a "cooling" herb. According to traditional Chinese medicine it can aid in the prevention of sore throat and promote the reduction of fever. In Korea, it is known well for its medicinal use for making people more alert and is often used as a pick-me-up to render the drinker more awake. In western herbal medicine, Ju Hua/Chrysanthemum is drunk or used as a compress to treat circulatory disorders such as varicose veins and atherosclerosis.
In traditional Chinese medicine, Ju Hua/Chrysanthemum is also said to clear the liver and the eyes. It is believed to be effective in treating eye pain associated with stress or yin/fluid deficiency. It is also used to treat blurring, spots in front of the eyes, diminished vision, and dizziness. The liver is associated with the element wood which rules the eyes and is associated with anger, stress, and related emotions.
Chrysanthemum tea is a flower-based tisane made from chrysanthemum flowers which are most popular in East Asia. To prepare the tea, chrysanthemum flowers (usually dried) are steeped in hot water (usually 90 to 95 degrees Celsius after cooling from a boil) in either a teapot, cup, or glass; often rock sugar is also added, and occasionally also wolfberries. The resulting drink is transparent and ranges from pale to bright yellow in color, with a floral aroma. In Chinese tradition, once a pot of chrysanthemum tea has been drunk, hot water is typically added again to the flowers in the pot (producing a tea that is slightly less strong); this process is often repeated several times.
