'Moxa' or moxibustion is a treatment used in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

The 'Moxa Wands' within can be used in the comfort of home as an easy therapy for women. Harvested from the mugwort plant, moxa helps to bring warmth and comfort to the womb area after birth or menstruation by promoting the circulation of "Qi" and blood. Nourish and honour the uterus ever so gently with this deeply relaxing and healing method. "Included 2 wands"

What you need

1 non-smoking moxa wand (included); a lighter or lit candle; small ceramic or glass dish for ash, a small towel for under the area being treated and a glass screw-top jar filled 1/4 with rice.

How to use

Light one end with lighter or lit candle. It may take several minutes to begin smoking slightly. Once lit, you will be able to hold the lit end 2-3 cms from the back of your hand and feel a pleasant radiating warmth. Hover lit end over lower abdomen/womb area, maintaining a distance of at least 2-3 cms so there is never any direct contact with the skin. Move wand slowly over the abdomen - it will begin to feel warm. Remove any ash formed on the end by gently tapping the edge of the wand on the edge of a small dish for the moxa to remain hot. Re-light if radiating warmth or redness disappears. At the end of treatment place the stick in a glass jar with dry rice to prevent glass from cracking. When lid is on the the wand is deprived of oxygen and will distinguish. Re-light for repeated treatments until wand is exhausted. Each moxa session can be 5-15 minutes.
