Label contains 3 Chinese characters that are literally translated to: "sky/day" and "fairy". When adjusted for English comprehension, product is Henbane/Hyoscyamus niger. Henbane is either annual or biennial plant that belongs to the Solanaceae family also known as the nightshade family. The plant is probably endemic to the Mediterranean countries and western Asia, but is now widespread in many parts of Europe, Asia, and North Africa. The leaves are used in herbal medicine, but the seeds have also to some extent been used. Henbane was used specifically for pain in the urinary tract, especially in the case of kidney stones. The sedative and antispasmodic effect makes it a valuable remedy for Parkinson’s disease, where it relieves tremors and stiffness in the early stages of the disease. The herb has also been used for a toothache and nervous disorders such as mania and hysteria. The herb has been used as an herbal remedy for bronchitis because of its cough suppressant effect and the ability to clear the breathing passages from secretions. At one time the dried leaves of henbane were smoked as a treatment for asthma.
