Dong quai root powder is utilized both alone and in combination herbal formulations for its wellness-supporting qualities, and it has even been referenced as “female ginseng” in TCM. A member of the Apiaceae family, Angelica sinensis is native to China and Japan and prefers to grow in cool, damp, high altitude soils. Dong quai powder can be tinctured and encapsulated.
