Catechu (Acacia)


Often used for its ability to tan and dye clothing, it also has medicinal benefits observed in traditional Chinese medicine.  Its properties are bitter, astringent and cooling– which is why it is applied topically for sores and open wounds to generate flesh and to aid in the arrest of bleeding. This herb is often used for sports injuries, such as bruising, and is seen in traditional formulas such as the centuries-old Dit Da Jow.
