  • Clears heat and cools the blood:  for heat entering the nutritive or blood levels, yin-deficient fever, persistent summertime fever in children, postpartum fever, and lingering fever as the sequela of a warm-heat pathogen disease that injures the blood or yin.  Most commonly used for post-partum fever and during the recovery from a febrile disease.*
  • Cools the blood and promotes urination:  for hot or painful bloody urinary dribbling, especially before or after giving birth.*
  • Resolves toxicity and treats sores:  for toxic sores, swollen and painful throat, and snakebite.  For these purposes, it can be taken internally or applied topically.  This action is not particularly strong.*
