In Chinese medicine, the Liver and Heart are responsible for calm and grounded dispositions. While the Liver is responsible for free flow of emotions, the Heart is responsible for sleep, memory and the shen which houses the spirit. The majority of the herbs in this blend have an affinity for the Heart and Liver allowing for the potential of one's mood to be lighter, free from constraint and calm.
