Xi Xin (Wild Ginger); Asarum Sieboldii; Asarum hetrotropoides Fr. Var. mandshuricum (maxim.) Kitag.; Herba asari cum Radice
Xi Xin, also known as Wild Ginger, Asarum, or Siebold, was first cited in Asian texts almost 2,000 years ago. Wild Ginger is one of the few warming, cold-dispersing herbs that also has essential oils which work to drive out dampness and other blockages. Coupled with its pain relieving properties and strong penetrating nature, Wild Ginger has justified its use in some martial arts training liniments.
The classical Shi Ba Fan (Eighteen Incompatibilities) states that this herb is INCOMPATIBLE with Li Lu (Veratrum).
