Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort to facilitate healing. Meridius® moxa comes direct from South Korea, where it is dried for three years before preparation and packaging. This time ensures our moxa will burn at a consistent, controlled temperature every time you use it.
We produce several varieties of moxa tailored to your needs, including direct moxa, stick-on moxa and smokeless moxa, which, unlike other brands, is made of 100% real mugwort. Suitable for any environment, our moxa burns without smoke or odor, and comes in two different strengths: mild, suitable for most treatments, and strong, for enhanced treatment.
