Blend description:

The Shy Doe tincture is based on Shi Wei Wen Dan Tang, a blend used in traditional Chinese medicine.043_Shi Wei Wen Dan Tang_Plachá laň_tinktura

This is a traditional blend that was prepared for timid people. For people who begin to tremble due to something new, those who are afraid of it, for people with a lack of courage, for people who are always discouraged by their first failure. The recipe is a modification of the traditional Wen Dan Tang blend, which was created for ‘shy’ Dan (gall bladder). Shi Wei Wen Dan Tang is modified to strengthen Xin (heart) and Shen. A form of Tan (mucus congestion) or Shi (dampness) is present in most cases. However, this Tan (mucus) may not be apparent.

Effects according to Chinese medicine:

  • Energetically strengthens gall bladder Dan (determination) and heart (Xin)
  • Soothes the spirit Shen
  • Transforms Tan (mucus)

Tongue: Pale with a soft white coating

Pulse: Weak
