TCM Kindergarden: Ban Xia and Chen Pi




We had an Instagram- Facebook Contest a few weeks ago. I posted a query about Ban Xia and Chen Pi.
How many formulas can you name with these two herbs, who are great friends.

My first herb teacher taught that ban xia and chen pi were the best pair for anything with a coated tongue. And pretty much, he’s right. We love this pair for all patterns involving phlegm-damp. It forms the core of Er Chen Tang which folds into so many other formulas.

It alleviates nausea, and is included in formulas for coughs, digestive disorders and even anxiety.
There’s well over 30 formulas with these two herb buddies. I’m posting formulas here that we have labels prepared.
