At Portland Healing Space we offer a Chinese Herbal Soup Mix that can be added to any bone or vegetable broth. Lotus seed, lycium fruit, dioscorea rhizome, polygonatum rhizome, black fungus, codonopsis root, astragalus root and longan fruit are considered tonics and strengthen the immune system. This herbal blend has a pleasant taste that enhances the texture of the soup. We highly recommend that you add this blend to your chicken soup because chicken is thought to bring out the tonifying and nourishing aspects of the herbs. If you choose not to add chicken, you can still reap the benefits of these healing herbs.
