For more than 1,000 years, the dried root of the white peony has been used in ancient Chinese medicine. It’s traditionally used to treat a wide range of ailments, including fever, inflammation, and pain. Some of these medicinal benefits have been proven by science.
Paeonia lactiflora goes by the common name of Chinese peony, and is a perennial herbaceous flowering shrub. The flowers are highly ornamental, and come in single and double varieties, in pinks, reds, coral, white and yellow shades that make for beautiful cut flowers.
At Starwest Botanicals they offer the finest, certified by the United States Department of Agriculture and Quality Assurance International Peony Root. The root of the Paeonia lactiflora is the part that grows under the ground. It comes in a sliced form for ease of use.
Great care must be taken by our suppliers of dried herbs, including Peony Root, so that the land where the plants are grown along with the plants themselves do not come into contact with synthetic chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, genetically modified organisms, or sewage sludge. Detailed records of how the crops are produced must be kept, and on-site inspections must occur in order to qualify for the certified organic rating.
