Jiang Xiang (Dalbergia Rosewood)
Chinese Herb: Jiang Xiang (Dalbergia Rosewood)
Dalbergiae Odiriferae; Lignum Dalbergiae Odoriferae
Jiang Xiang is the wood of a rose tree. Rose wood belongs to the group of blood invigorators and like San Qi, has the unique ability to both move blood and stop bleeding simultaneously. To this end, it is used for traumatic injury and sports injuries. On occasion, you can find it hidden in a dit da jow recipe, and would make a less expensive alternative to San Qi.
Jiang Xiang is acrid and energetically warm and enters the Liver, Spleen, and Heart meridians.
