Natural Skin Care Products by Wildcrafted Herbal Products


Ginseng has been used in traditional Chinese herbal medicine for at least 5000 years. All ancient texts on ginseng mention its use as a tonic or restorative that will bring the body back into balance as expressed in the Chinese philosophy of yin and yang. Although American ginseng was generally not considered of any medicinal value in the US until about 1905, it has been prized in China for it's medical purposes for several hundred years.

Herbal Extract: Ginseng


Botanical Name: Panax ginseng

Faminy: Araliaceae

Ginseng is so well known in both the East and West that it has become the most widely used of all medicinal herbs. The koreans and Chinese have employed it as a panacea for centuries. This is reflected in its botanical name, Panax from pan meaning all, and skos meaning remedy.

It was so highly prized in the Orient that not only did emperors monopolize the rights to harvest the roots, but wars were fought over them. The word Ginseng is derived from Jin-chen or Schin-seng, meaning man root or like a man, after the peculiar human shape of the root. In commerce various grades exist depending on shape, age and colouor. Red Korean Ginseng is one of the most expensive and sought-after types.
