Su Xiao Jiu Xin Wan – The two ingredients in this tiny Chinese herbal pill are medical camphor to dilate blood vessels and ligusticum (chuan xiong) an aromatic herb that enhances heart action by facilitating blood flow and Qi and reducing pain. Many TCM practitioners prescribe ligusticum to treat irregular painful menstrual periods and headaches. It is also given to patients with inflammation caused by injuries, carbuncles and boils.
