Green series: Detox

The green series are portraits of three medicinal herbs used to purify the blood and detoxify the liver, and one plant that is toxic – as we sometimes poison ourselves in our eagerness to please others. 

In traditional Chinese medicine, green is the colour of the liver, and the liver is the organ that contains the emotions related to anger, such as rage, irritation, impatience, resentment, guilt, and shame.

These purifying herbs can help after having to endure situations that anger us, if we have a hard time digesting what we see, or we get resentful when we compare ourselves with others.
