This exclusive Kobayashi-rouho product is the perfect Shiunko (Moxa Ointment) for all of your direct moxibustion needs!
The methods of Direct Moxibustion commonly use Shiunko to fulfil a number of important functions:
1. To act as a barrier between direct moxa cones/grains/threads and the skin to protect the skin
2. To assist in allowing the moxa cones/grains/threads to adhere to the Moxibustion Point(s)
3. To soothe the skin.
This particular Shiunko was originally formulated and manufactured by Kobayashi-rouho at the request of Master Moxibustionist Junji Mizutani.
Mizutani requested a high quality product that did not contain lard (animal oil that is commonly used in many Shiunko recipes), and that had a perfect consistency for all moxibustion needs. Kobayashi-rouho then created a superior product with traditional herbal ingredients, that is now the Shiunko of choice for many master practitioners.
28 Grams per tub.
Beeswax, Sesame Oil, Castor Oil, Artemisia, Angelica.
Made in Japan
As this product does not contain lard, it is considered a culturally sensitive product which is suitable for practitioners and patients who are not permitted to use this ingredient due to religious reasons.
