Herbs: Mugwort, Chinese cinnamon, galangal, Chen Pi (aged tangerine peel), cyperus. Unlike most incense on the market, ours is made from pure herbs and contain no synthetic fragrances, additives, or bamboo/charcoal stick underneath.
Shenqi Tongtian is formulated with mugwort, Chinese cinnamon, galangal, aged tangerine peel, cyperus and other medicinal herbs. This recipe promotes qi and blood, drives away cold and dampness, warms Yang, and removes "evil" qi. From a feng shui perspective, the particular herbs from this recipe can drive out cold or stagnant negative energy from the house. This formula can also be used for direct moxibustion, which is used to remove dampness, generate yang, and activate blood circulation.
It is suitable for everyone, but particularly for those with heavy damp-cold, and people who are prone to negative energy.
Modern medicine often considers medicine as a substance to be swallowed. However, since ancient times, both in Eastern and Western medicine, medical recipes were not only decoctions to be taken directly orally--patients also improved their condition by the intake of the fragrance of medicine. This method was referred to as "taking qi" in traditional Chinese medical terms. Western historical sources also illuminated that European medical incense ingredients sometimes overlapped with traditional Chinese medical incense ingredients, with herbs such as myrrh, styrax, frankincense, and spikenard appearing both in the West and East, as seen in the Codex Sangallensis, a 9th century collection of medical texts housed in St. Gallen, Switzerland, which include incense among its medical recipes.
