Honeysuckle (jīn yín huā; 金银花) is one of the most popular anti-inflammatory herbs in TCM. Due to its heat-clearing and detoxifying effects, it is commonly used to treat upper respiratory tract infections, common cold with wind-heat symptoms, fever, cough, sore throat, acute and chronic tonsillitis, skin infections (e.g. carbuncles and sores), and even mastitis.
● Clears body heat
● Relieves common cold with wind-heat symptoms such as sore throat, fever, cough with thick yellow phlegm, runny nose with yellow mucus, dark yellow urine, and hard or dry stools
● Detoxifies the body
● Reduces inflammation and infection
● Soothes skin redness and inflammation
● Relieves mastitis
Fragrant, mild taste with slightly bitter notes
Individuals with weak spleen or stomach (e.g. bloated abdomen, loose stools, and poor appetite) and those with Qi-deficiency (e.g. fatigue and abnormal sweating) should avoid taking honeysuckle. Not recommended for treatment of sores that exude clear fluid, and should only be used when there is thick yellow discharge.
