Also known as Dong Quai, this antioxidant rich, adaptogenic root has long been cultivated for its health effects, especially in women. This root contains compounds which have been shown to aid in gynecological regulation, which in turn can aid in the conditioning of women's skin.
The polysaccharides in Angelicae Sinesis have also been shown to cause hematopoietic effects, meaning it aids in the formation of new red blood cells and thus could aid in the bioavailability of other compounds in the bloodstream. In addition, this root has also been shown to boost the immune system, meaning a decreased likelihood of acne too!
‘Beauty’ is something I've struggled with for many years. Especially in my adulthood and now motherhood.
There are days that I associate beauty with not being enough or worthy because I don't look a certain way - Especially after bringing two tiny humans into this world.
But i'm working on it. I promise :) And on the bright side those days are very rare. Over time, I've come to understand that true beauty starts from the within and it's a never ending journey that changes with every season in your life.
