Peonies have been cultivated in China for 2,000 years for both ornamental purposes (at least 1,000 varieties) and medicinal applications, with peony root used to treat digestive complaints, inflammatory conditions and hemorrhages. The European peony was used for similar medicinal purposes in ancient times and the Middle Ages. It was also considered a magical herb and specific precautions had to be taken when picking it. Dry peony root was believed to be a lucky charm, and worn as a protective talisman.
Peony has softening and moisturizing properties.
