Moves the qi, quickens the blood, and stops pain.
For the symptomatic relief of any external or internal pain.
Hong Hua (Flos Carthami) is a blood-quickening medicinal. It quickens the blood and transforms stasis.
Hong Hua is a commonly used medicinal in liniments and tinctures for both traumatological and
impediment pain conditions. Gan Song Xiang (Rhizoma Nardostachytis), i.e., Chinese Spikenard, is an acrid, sweet, and warm, aromatic, dampness-drying medicinal.2 However, despite its most common categorization, its main functions are that it rectifies the Qi and stops pain. Only secondly does it arouse the spleen and clear away turbidity (when taken internally).3 In terms of its pain-stopping ability, this medicinal is commonly applied externally. Gan Song Xiang is a member of the Valerianaceae family. Like Valerian, this medicinal has pronounced sedative and anodyne effects.
When Hong Hua and Gan Song Xiang are combined together, Gan Song Xiang moves the Qi and Hong Hua moves the blood. In addition, alcohol enters all the channels and network vessels where it strongly moves the Qi and quickens the blood. Alcohol also potentizes the medicinal effects of other ingredients combined with it. Therefore, the alcohol in this medication is both a medium and an active ingredient in its own right.
