A highly valuable chinese herb, the silk tree flowers are gorgeous. Medicinally the flower and extracts have been used for dysphoria-induced wakefulness, depression, dreaminess and ungrounded states. It has also been used for insomnia and stress, and is considered a plant that can help us move through times of grief or sadness. It was traditionally used to relieve the spirit, and dispels emotional constraint. It has been said to be used for breathlessness, uplifting the mood, or even as a “Spirit Tonic”. Enjoy these lovely buds!
