The Empress’ Plaits tincture is based on the traditional Nu Huang Bian Zi Tang blend, administered by Chinese medicine practitioners.

This traditional Chinese blend is used to treat hair loss or premature greying. According to Chinese medicine, hair quality is affected by the quality of Shen Ying (kidney essence) and the amount of Gan Xue (liver blood). The blend’s imperial herb is known as He Shou Wu (Polygonum multiflorum). When translated, it means “the herb that turns Mr. Wu’s hair black”. Its main effects include strengthening Shen Jing (kidney essence) and Gan Xue (liver blood). This is mainly useful when treating hair loss, bad hair condition, or premature greying. It also Show Wu moisturises dry hair. Another herb contained in the blend, Shu Di Huang, strengthens the effect He Shou Wu has on hair nourishment.

Ideal composition, maximum power, and effectiveness

Chinese herbs and mushrooms are the basis of our alcoholic YaoMedica tinctures. We use only the highest-quality ingredients in order to achieve maximum effectiveness. First, the herbs or mushrooms are ground into a very fine powder, using a special machine. Then, they’re macerated in 50% alcohol for up to one month. The macerated extract is dynamised every day. Tinctures aren’t diluted further once finished. That’s very important.

Compared to herbal brews or hot-water extracts, the mechanism of releasing active substances by means of maceration in 50% alcohol is much more intense. When tinctures are used, active substances are released as early as in the oral cavity, increasing effectiveness.

Individual YaoMedica tincture formulas are based on the experience and time-tested traditional Chinese medicine methods which has existed for more than 4,000 years. Its view of humans is holistic, i.e. it has a comprehensive perception of the human body, as a whole, and at the same time as a part of the environment. Balance and harmony – that’s the way to deal with many issues brought about by our current lifestyle, both on a physical and psychological level.

  • shake the tincture before use. Slight turbidity is normal.
  • daily dose equals 1 drop per 1 kg of body weight. Split the daily dose in two parts – morning and evening, i.e. if you weigh, e.g., 70 kg, you’ll be taking 35 drops in the morning and 35 drops in the evening. This way, the tincture will last 15 days.
  • dose can be tripled if recommended by a professional.
  • use the tinctures on an empty stomach, with a minimum interval of 30 minutes before a meal, or an hour after a meal.
