The Rhizome of nutgrass, also called Cyprus, is an aromatic qi-regulating herb. Acrid, slightly bitter, and slightly sweet, Xiang Fu has a neutral energy. One of the most commonly used regulating herbs, it 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."
Xiang Fu acts to promote the free flow of Qi in the liver, to regulate menstruation and stop pain.
