In Ayurveda Calamus is considered an aromatic, bitter tonic which stimulates digestion. Similar in looks to ginger, calamus root's sweet smell makes it valuable in perfumes as well.

Fu zi (Prepared Aconite)

View Fu zi (Prepared Aconite) in more detail >>

In the world of herbs, there is simply nothing that represents life and death like Aconite, which is also known as Wolfsbane or Fu Zi, among many other names. On one hand it is so poisonous that improper use can cause human respiratory paralysis, cardiac arrest, and even death. In fact Wolfsbane has been used in poison tipped arrows and deadly concoctions for thousands of years, appearing famously in classical works of fiction to modern day cinema. While the weapons experts of their day took advantage of Fu Zi's deadly nature, herbalists, from traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda to Greek and Roman medical practitioners like Theophrastus, Dioscorides, and Pliny the Elder, came to regard Fu Zi as the most essential of medicinal herbs. According to studies, the frequency that Fu Zi used in Chinese herbal formulas is over 13% - that�s every condition, every symptom, every ailment. 13% of the time this herb is found to be helpful. That number helps explain the name �King of the 100 Herbs� ascribed to Fu Zi in Chinese Medicine.
