Schisandra: The queen of all medicinal herbs

Posted by Eileen Feighny on

There is a lot going on in the products we use everyday and naturally, our clients often ask very interesting questions about our ingredients.

Just a few days ago Laura was asking me about Schisandra, the ultimate superberry we use in our incredible Botanical Facial Oil and I wanted to talk to you about it.

I grew up in Korea drinking this delicious berry tea. In Korea, it’s popular as a health drink as it’s known to work as an adaptogen — to help the body adapt to stress and normalize bodily processes. In Korea, it’s called OMIJA, OH means “five”, MI means “flavor,” and JA means “son”.

The five elements

The five elements: water, wood, fire, earth, and metal

The five flavors (sweet, sour, salty, bitter and pungent) correspond to the five elements: water, wood, fire, earth, and metal. This berry has so many health benefits internally and externally. In terms of skincare, it is known to be a powerful antioxidant, balancing for the skin, stabilizing for the lipid membrane (#acidmantle) and reduces facial redness by decreasing cellular sensitivity to environmental and bodily stressors.

The fact that it has been in continuous use and praise for at least 5,000 years in Asian cultures demonstrates that the reputation of Schisandra is well-founded, and we are extremely happy to use it in our Botanical Facial Oil.
