Two Immortals Wine

Two Immortals Wine One other formula is the "Two Immortals Wine." According to Taoist lore, the tortoise and the deer, the "Two Immortals," are symbols of longevity and vitality. This formula is used to strongly invigorate the Jing, Qi, Blood and Marrow. It is a very hot and Yang tonifying formula as it is composed of Lu rong, and Ginseng. The other two components of the formula are Gou qi zi and Gui ban (Chinemys reevesii Gray, turtle shell). All together the herbs are soaked in rice wine or vodka for a minimum of four months, further enhancing the heating and moving qualities of the herbs. This formula should not be taken by Yang deficient practitioners unless it is modified. http://www.geocities.com/hotsprings/2426/AOherb.html
