Xiao Yao Wan (Xiao Yao Pian, Xiao Yao San, Free & Easy Wanderer, EaseTonic™, Relaxx extract, 逍遥片) is a well-known ancient Chinese herbal medicine for Liver Qi stagnation. Today, it is a commonly used herbal remedy for anxiety, irritability, stress, and depression due to everyday challenges or premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Qi is the vital energy whose smooth flow around the body keeps the body and its organs working in harmony. When a flow of Qi in meridians is stagnated the affected organs will malfunction. In case of liver Qi stagnation, one typically feels distending pain along the sides of the body (especially in the chest), easily gets upset, depressed, and has irregular, painful menstruation or swollen breasts for woman.

Xiao Yao Pian (Wan) disperses liver Qi stagnation. While studies have yet to fully reveal how it works in modern biomedical terms, researches have suggested that Xiao Yao Wan may regulate menstruation by regulating the secretion of hormones. In a study in which 51 patients were involved, levels of estrogen (E2) and prolactin were significantly reduced after use of Xiao Yao Wan whereas no change was observed in the level of testosterone1.

Xiao Yao Wan is indicated in China Pharmacopoeia2 for soothing the liver and strengthening the spleen, tonifying the blood and regulating menstruation. It is used for irregular menstruation, distension pain in the chest and hypochondria, dizziness and blurry vision, and loss of appetite due to liver Qi stagnation. Below are highlights of some applications of Xiao Yao Wan from published and unpublished studies.

• Mood Enhancement. If you get easily angry, irritated, your mood swings often up and down, you fell depressed. Often times you also feel distension pain in the chest.

• Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and Menstruation Irregularity or Pain. You are a lady and each month you experience some tense days when you are short of temper, dizzy, thirsty, hot flush, and with distending pain in the breasts.

• Necrosis. In a study condition is improved in 23 out of 26 patients1.

• Breast Hyperplasia. Remission or significant improvements were reported in many separate clinical studies1.

    Ease tonic

    I have been using this for a month. I needed it to get through the stressful time of two eclipses. I am not using it now but am glad it is there.

    Helps me sleep

    Great product, helps me sleep

    Have side effects of rashes

    I had bought 2 different products from this company before I tried the xiao yao pian. They were Gui pi pian and ban xia you po wan. After taking the supplements with the recommended dosage separately with 2 weeks interval, my face was very red and broken into pimple-like rashes all over. The supplements also kept me wide awake at night as if I had taken a caffeine drink. I thought the products were just not suitable for me or could be too 'heaty', so I stopped taking them all for 5 months and went to consult a TCM physician. My TCM physician gave me a different brand xiao yao wan and it helped a lot to relieve my PMS. After I finished the bottle, I thought it would be cheaper to get the same product online. It seems to me that this company has a high integrity in making their products, I decided to give it a second chance. So I bought their xiao yao pian. I took it at a lower dosage ( 4 pills a day instead of 5 pills twice a day). For just 2 days, although it helped a little in relieving my PMS, but again, my face broke into pimple-liked rashes! I am so upset. Both products have the same ingredient list but why I am getting those rashes after consuming the xiao yao pian made from Activeherb? I hope to believe in their products but unfortunately, it didnt worked out well for me.

    Fast shipping

    Bought this about a month ago. Overall, I think I've felt more positive or at least more aware of myself. Ships within a week- super fast.

    Life changing

    I was recommended this supplement by my Accupuncturist. I have tried numerous medications for anxiety and depression, but I always ended up quitting them due to the side effects. Xiao Yao Pian helps alleviate my PMS symptoms and helps keep my mind at ease. I have been taking this supplement for 4 months now and I have had no side effects, only great results that have improved my day to day life tremendously. I would highly recommend this product.

    Si funciona esta formulación para la depresión. This formulation works for depression.

    Ya he terminado el primer frasco de Xiao Yao Pian y me ha ayudado a salir de una depresión profunda. Los antidepresivos me han ayudado, pero con el tiempo, además de los efectos secundarios, sólo me permiten recuperarme pero con mucha indiferencia. Estoy combinando los antidepresivos con esta formulación y mis sentimientos han regresado. También los efecto secundarios de los antidepresivos han disminuido. Esto concuerda con los resultados del trabajo de investigación "Chinese Herbal Formula Xiao Yao San for Treatment of Depression: A Systematic Review of Randomized Controlled Trials" Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, Volume 2012 (2012), Article ID 931636, 13 pages. Muchas gracias. I finished the first bottle of Xiao Yao Pian and has recover me out of a deep depression. Antidepressants have helped me, but over time, in addition to side effects, only allow me to recover but with much indifference. I'm combining antidepressants with this formulation and my feelings have returned. Also the side effects of antidepressants have decreased. This agrees with the results of the research "Chinese Herbal Formula Xiao Yao San for Treatment of Depression: A Systematic Review of Randomized Controlled Trials" Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, Volume 2012 (2012), Article ID 931636, 13 pages. Thanks a lot.

    Ease tonic

    This is a formula recommended by a TCM doctor for me. I took this one before a long time ago. I bought it and it helps with my stressful life. I am sensitive to herbs and so I can feel the results.

    Great for Stress Relief

    I have taken this formula in various forms over the course of approximately 4 years - on and off again, as needed. It is great for reducing anxiety and stress, but the reason that this particular form (pian) / product doesn't get five stars is because it's much weaker than a raw herb decoction. I am taking the largest recommended dose, but I am not experiencing the benefits of increased bowel regularity or a reduction in PMS - as I did when brewing the formula myself. I have been considering increasing the dosage... Maybe I have just been spoiled by getting raw herbal formulas that I brew myself for years.


    This product really does what it states. I take it in the morning and at night. I feel less anxious and so much calmer than before I started taking it at the recommended dosage. It works!

    Fantastic Product!

    I bought this for a few of my clients and its working wonderfully, thank you!

    The perfect supplement for those have anxious depression who do not want the side effects!!!

    I am a western medicine practitioner; anxiety and depression are the two most common mood disorders in clinical encounters. I, myself, is one of those who suffer from these two conditions. I personally have tried many different antidepressants; however, the side effects were troublesome; therefore, I had to quit taking them, just like many of my patients did. After faithfully taking this supplement for two weeks, I started feeling an improvement in my mood and energy level without any side effects. Thank you so much for providing this awesome product! ps. I take 5 pills, twice a day, one in the morning, and another in the evening.

    Never stress again

    This stuff is amazing! I can feel it almost instantaneously bring down my heart rate and make me calm. I take 5 tablets two times a day!

    Xiao Yao Pian is very good for anxiety.

    Xiao Yao Pian is very good for anxiety. I have used it for 2 years as needed.
