Chinese Herb

Xiang Fu (Nutgrass Rhizome, Cyperus tuber); Cyperus Rotundus L.; Rhizoma Cyperi

The Rhizome of nutgrass, also called Cyperus, is an aromatic qi-regulating herb; acrid, slightly bitter and slightly sweet, it has a neutral energy. One of the msot commonyl used regulating herbs, this herb is often used for Liver qi stagnation and pain relief.

As a gardening anecdote, nutgrass is frustratingly difficult plantlife to remove from a lawn. The fact that this plant must be systematically starved over a number of years to rid a lawn of starch to fuel the seeds, is testament to its ability to “regulate.”
