Country of Origin: China
Production: Schisandra is native to Northern China, Russia, and parts of Korea. Aside from its medicinal applications, it is also grown as an ornamental vine due to its ability to grow upwards and display beautiful leaves and hanging bunches of bright red berries.
Qualities: Schisandra also known as "wu-wei-zi" (five flavour fruit) in China, usually has sour, sweet, bitter, warm, and salty taste notes and has been consumed for centuries as a tea to boost the mood and help with fatigue.
Common Use: To make a schisandra infusion in fruit juice, pour 1/2 a cup of berries into one gallon of a dark fruit juice and allow to soak for a day, then strain. It can also be added to teas, herbal brews (soft simmer) and is effective as a liquid herbal extract and herbal capsule. To make schisandra syrup, soak berries in vegetable glycerin for a month.
Storage: Store in a cool, dark, dry place in a sealed container.
Safety: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
