Chinese herb stories 2: Lonicera japonica Flos or Japanese honeysuckle (Jin Yin Hua)

Lonicerae japonicae flos (Jin Yin Hua in Chinese), flowers or flower buds of Lonicera japonica Thunberg, is an extremely used traditional edible-medicinal herb.

Once upon a time, in a small village, A couple who were very diligent had twin daughters. The girls’ names were Jin Hua and Yin Hua which Jin Hua meant yellow color flower, Yin Hua meant white color flower, the combination meant white and yellow flowers. In a summer, a terrible disease spread out in the village. People who got it had high fever, did not respond to any treatments and they were dying. The twin sisters asked the permission from their parents to go and find a doctor and medicine for the patients. They came to the mountain Hua and a Chinese doctor told them to climb up to the mountain to pick up flowers which blossomed in the summer yellow and white due to changing colour from white to yellow. These plants didn’t die off in the winter. The twin sisters picked up the flowers from all of the mountains. They took the flowers home, boiled them and let patients drink the soup. All sick people were healed. To remember the twin sisters, they name the flowers Jin Yin Hua.
