The herb mugwort has been dried and used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years by burning it in Moxibustion therapy. Unlike Acupuncture and Reflexology that moves and shifts the individual’s energy for better flow, moxa is said to add in extra energy into their system.
Research has shown that this plant alone, when burned, has the power to emit infrared radiation. The infrared heat flows into your body through the skin producing a pleasant, warm, palpable influx of energy. Good for chronic pain, lack of energy (conditions like chronic fatigue), insomnia, chills, stomach aches and lower back pain benefit fertility and used to support turning a baby in the breech position.
