Dit Da Jow (Northern Shaolin)

What is Dit Da Jow Liniment ?

Dit Da Jow is an Chinese liniment traditionally preferred by martial arts enthusiasts. Often a martial arts master blends his unique mixture of many Chinese herbs, which are combined to stimulate circulation, reduce pain and swelling, and improve healing of injuries and wounds. This traditionally became known as “hit medicine”. Many people have also found this sort of liquid analgesic to be useful for reducing the aching of muscles, and arthritis and rheumatism discomfort.

What can Dit Da Jow Liniment be used for?

Dit Da Jow Liniment can be used for all sorts of painful conditions and injuries including bruising, muscle tears, ligament injuries and broken bones. When applied, it can help stop pain and start the healing process. For broken bones and fractures it is thought to speed the regeneration of bone and surrounding tissues. For those Martial Arts enthusiasts that are undergoing Iron Palm training the formulation has many similarities with Shattering Palm Iron Palm Jow and thus can be used as an Iron Palm Liniment.

Dit Da Jow Massage Oil (Northern Shaolin) 100ml

Dit Da Jow Massage Oil (Northern Shaolin). This formulation is produced by infusing 20 different Chinese Herbs into grapeseed oil. The formulation is slightly different than the Dit Da Jow liniment as it does not contain Tao Ren (peach kernel) or Long Gu (fossilised Mammal bones). These two herbs have been replaced by Xue Jie (Resina Draconia) and San Qi (Radix Notosoginseng). This has been done to make the massage oil nut free and vegan friendly. This massage oil can be used for all sorts of injuries including bruising, muscle tears and ligament injuries. When applied, it can help with pain and be used as part of a general pain management programme. Herbs used in the infusion process are Ru Xiang (Frankincense) Mo Yao (Myrrh) Hong Hua (Safflower) Dang Gui Wei (Angelica Tail) Zhi Shi (Immature Bitter Orange) Chuan Xiong (Ligusticum) Chuan Niu Xi (Cyathula Root) Chen Xiang (Aquilaria Wood), Chen Xiang (Agarwood Resin), Xue Jie (Resina Draconia), Mu Xiang (Auklandia) Jing Jie (Schizonepeta) Chi Shao (Red Peony) Jie Geng (Platycodon) Zhi Zi (Gardenia Fruit) Bai Shao (White Peony), San Qi (Radix Notosoginseng), (Mu Dan Pi (Mountain Peony) Gui Zhi (Cinnamon, Cassia Twig) Yan Hu Suo (Corydalis Rhizome).

Dit Da Jow Liniment Preparation

The maceration process (extraction of the active ingredients from the herbs) takes about 3 months for the powdered herb kits and 6 months to 1 year for the whole dried herb kits. The powdered herb kits have a larger surface area for extraction and hence the active ingredients in the herbs will be extracted more quickly. Add your herbs to your wide necked glass jar and add your premixed alcohol mixture 25% V/V or 40% V/V (alcohol / distilled water). Place lid on the jar, tighten and seal round with tape or parafilm. Shake the jar until the herbs are mixed throughout the liquid and store in a cool dark place. The jar should be thoroughly shaken 2 to 3 times a week.

The 105g dry herbal kit should make up 8 x 100ml bottles of Dit Da Jow and the 420g dry herb kit should make up 35 x 100ml bottles of Dit Da Jow. You can use expensive Vodka or cheaper surgical spirit 90% ethanol.
