Dit da jow is Chinese (跌打酒) and roughly translated as “hit fall wine”. This liquid is created by soaking specific combinations or formulas of herbs in alcohol and then aged by allowing it to steep for a specific amount of time. Once it has been aged, it is used as a form of liniment or for pain relief and other more specific types of healing and/or conditioning.
The uses of dit da jow can generally be put into three (3) main categories: pain relief, healing (the healing of bruises, sprains and strains to muscles, tendons, ligaments, etc.) and conditioning (including the strengthening of any and all tissues that are affected by different types of impact such as the skin, muscles, various connective tissues, the bones, etc.).
PLEASE NOTE: This category includes ALL herbal products whether they are technically dit da jow or not.
