Mental-Emotional Pattern
Liver-Blood houses the Hun (Ethereal Soul). The Hun is responsible for plans, ideas, inspiration, life dreams, creativity. The Hun likes “movement”: on a psychological level, this movement gives the Shen the above-mentioned attributes.

Blood is the “mother of Qi” but also is part of Yin. When Blood deficiency is associated with Qi deficiency, the movement of the Hun is deficient. The formula Glorious Sea™ is for the latter. The formula is for the skin where Blood deficiency and Blood-Heat prevail.
