In TCM, a smooth flow of Qi is vital in ensuring the proper functioning of our body. Our liver stores blood, circulates Qi (energy) in the body, as well as regulates any emotional disturbances. In women's physiology, the liver also helps to regulate the menstrual cycle by moving Qi and blood.
Rose relieves liver Qi stagnation, invigorates blood, and relieves pain. It is commonly used to treat liver Qi stagnation symptoms such as abdominal distension, pain in the abdomen, irregular periods, and pain in the breasts before the start of a menstrual cycle. It is also rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C.

If you find pure rose tea too fragrant but still want to enjoy its light soothing floral note in your cup along with its benefits, try blending the rose buds with black tea, green tea, longans, Schisandra berries (wǔ wèi zi; 五味子), or honey.
How to make a Schisandra berry rose tea:
Infuse 6g rose buds and 3g Schisandra berries (wǔ wèi zi; 五味子) in a cup of hot water for about 5 minutes before consuming. Sweeten with honey or rock sugar. This healthy tea has the benefits of tonifying the kidneys, enhancing mood, and improving menstrual health.
Excessive and prolonged stress is a common cause of liver Qi stagnation. When there is poor Qi circulation in the liver, it often leads to disharmony in our digestive system, menstrual disorders, and other emotional imbalances.
Symptoms of liver Qi stagnation include:
● Gastrointestinal issues such as abdominal distension; flatulence; belching; nausea; lower abdominal pain, etc.
● Menstrual problems such as irregular periods with impeded menstrual flow; pain in the breasts and abdomen before the start of the menstrual cycle; dark red menstrual blood with small blood clots, etc.
● Emotional disorders such as irritability; moodiness; prone to anger; anxiety; depression; insomnia, etc.
