There is nothing more unsightly or uncomfortable as heavy menstrual flow. You go through an endless succession of pads with no relief in sight. That is, until now. By utilizing the most effective elements of traditional Chinese medicine, we are able to bring you a remedy that is not only effective in alleviating heavy flow it is also beneficial in other matters relating to health overall.

Among the potent herbs in this remedy is Fennel Seed. It contains a compound called phytoestrogen, which acts like a mild form of the female hormone, estrogen. This property makes it an effective remedy for regulating menstruation. Also included is Corydalis, a pain reliever and sedative, used in treating menstrual pain and symptoms that occur during the menstrual cycle. Beyond providing heavy menstruation relief, Ginger has been shown to clean and thin the blood thus positively affecting the heart and almost every other organ in the body, such as the stomach. When it is healthy the internal energies are as well, able to flow about the body much more freely. Such reactions have a positive impact on your entire physiology.

You Will Need

Herbal Blend

10 grams of Fennel Seed (Xiao Hui Xiang)
10 grams of Corydalis (Yan Hu Suo)
10 grams of Angelica Sinensis (Dong Quai)
8 grams of Cyperi Rhizoma (Xiang Fu Zi)
6 grams of Ligusticum (Chuan Xiong)
6 grams of Paeonia Lactiflora (Bai Shao)
5 grams of Vaccaria (Wang Bu Liu Xing)
5 grams of Ginger (Jiang)


  1. Pour the herbal blend into the jar, up to between a quarter to half of its capacity (20 oz)
  2. Add Vodka, Rum or Brandy just above the level of herbs.
  3. Seal the jar (tightly, to prevent leakage or evaporation)
  4. Store the jar in a dry and dark area.
  5. Add more alcohol over the next few days, as the dried herbs soak and expand.
  6. Store the jar up to two weeks to three months.

Ready to Drink

  1. Strain the tincture through a sieve with cheesecloth into another clean jar or storage container.
  2. Extract the remaining tincture by squeezing the saturated herbs and transfer it into a dropper bottle. Refrigerate it.
  3. Drink two teaspoons right after lunch and dinner. If you can’t stand the taste, dilute it with water, juice, or tea.

Discussion & Tips

Most herbal tinctures are prepared using alcohol as a solvent. If you can’t consume alcohol use Apple Cider Vinegar or Wine Vinegar instead. It is recommended to store them in the refrigerator, but be sure to label the jars clearly in order to prevent other family members from inadvertently drinking your tincture. Avoid using plastic containers at all costs. The ethanol in the tincture may solubilize some of the free vinyl substances in the plastic and some PBA might leak out. Never use stainless steel containers for long-term storage.

If the tiny fragments of residue passing through the cheesecloth concern you, filter them twice through a paper coffee filter.

This Botanical Tincture has helped me out so much with my heavy bleeding. My periods no longer look like murder scenes but instead it's just a little bit of bleeding the first day. I am glad I was able to find this because now I am able to be with a guy and not be uncomfortable knowing that blood can come out gushing out of everywhere.
