I was wondering what a list of herbs that are dangerous or toxic to mix together.
Would love to know which ones are dangerous and why?
This post has the following associations:
Herbs: da ji, gan cao, gan sui, hai zao, ren shen, wu ling zhi, yuan hua

We don't have a simple list but most of the information is within the herbal section. Part of the reason a simple list isn't presented is that many of the toxicities can be mitigated or outright eliminated by either preparation methods and/or the inclusion of other herbs in a particular formula.
On our site, herbs with incompatibilities are generally mentioned with the phrasing "incompatible with" or "antagonist with" found under the "precaution" section. Examples would be:
- Gan Cao - "Incompatible with Gan Sui, Da Ji, Yuan Hua, Hai Zao (although used in some formulas with Hai Zao)"
- Ren Shen - "Antagonist with Wu Ling Zhi, Incompatible with Li Lu."
