Rose Shen Tonic

I love all things Dragon Herbs.  And with huge life transitions and shifts appearing, full moons, + intense healing in full force, I am pulling out all the stops to manage my anxieties, worries, and the fear of the unknown - that one especially will get me every time no matter how much I center and live presently...a lifelong lesson for sure.

So I've turned to tonics, elixirs, meditation, crystals, a little magic, and ROSES for assistance.  ROSE, according to Dragon Herbs "opens the heart and lifts one’s mood.

In other words, consistent drinking “beautifies the spirit.”

WHAT IS SHEN | Shen is our spirit.  It may also be translated as our higher consciousness.  Chinese masters say that Shen is the all-embracing love that resides in our Heart.  Shen is expressed as love, compassion, kindness, generosity, acceptance, forgiveness and tolerance.  It manifests as our wisdom and our ability to see all sides of all issues, our ability to rise above the world of right and wrong, good and bad, yours and mine, high and low, etc.  Shen is our higher knowledge that everything is one, even though nature manifests dualistically and cyclically, often obscuring our vision and creating illusion.

ABOUT SHEN TONIC | Certain true Shen tonic herbs encourage the opening up of Shen.  There are also Shen "stabilizers" which help stabilize our emotions so that Shen (our higher self) re-emerge and rule our lives.  The emotions are allowed to play themselves out, but not to dominate our lives.  Shen tonics have been used by the great sages of the Orient to help in their quest for enlightenment and harmony with God, Nature and all of Mankind.


WILD ASPARAGUS ROOT | directly affects the Spiritual Heart, the "Seat of Shen" by stabilizing the emotional component of the Heart, and allowing the Heart to communicate with the Brain and Kidneys.

ALBIZZIA FLOWER | is a wonderful herb that has a very calming effect on the spirit.

WILD REISHI | is the premier Shen tonic of all herbalism.

TIBETAN RHODIOLA SACRA |  is the most sacred herb used in Himalayan herbalism. Himalayan Rhodiola directly tonifies the organs and functions associated with Shen and provides a basis for higher consciousness.  It has spirit lifting effects and strengthens the mind.

GINSENG | has been revered for three thousand years as a Shen tonic.

LONGAN | is a blood tonic, improving circulation and building blood.

TO MAKE | Begin by brewing 5 grams of high quality French rose buds in 10-15 oz. of water for a short time.  Then add 3 squirts of Supreme Shen Drops.   The rose buds will continue to extract in a heated brew.  Take some deep cleansing breaths and enjoy.
