Moxa NW was founded with a mission to supply high quality and ethically harvested mugwort products to practitioners and herbalists.
We wildcraft this lovely plant in the San Juan Islands of WA at the peak of summer, before it goes to seed. The plant is dried naturally in our meditation yurt. We then spin the mugwort leaves by hand in a four step process that removes all of the chaff and turns it to a perfectly refined, high grade moxa.
Moxa is burned as a medicinal smoke and is used to gently smudge the body. It is perfect for use in conjunction with acupuncture treatments and offers a slightly less acrid effect than Artemesia vulgaris that most Asian moxa is derived from.
