How to Prepare Chinese Herbal Prescriptions
All of the herbal formulas sold by seaofchi.com come in either two basic forms:
1) in the raw form, which requires the dried Chinese herbs be decocted (or made into a tea), or cured in an alcohol solution (made into a medicinal wine or jiu), or powdered which will allow you to put the powder into OO-sized capsules or you may add the powder to your favorite juice or smoothie and drink it that way.
2) patent formulas, which have been imported from China, these formulas are commercially prepared dried herbs in pill form, tablets, salves, syrups, herbal oils or ointments.
All seaofchi.com purchase orders will contain instructions on how to prepare the raw herb formula into an herbal tea (decoction), or make a medicinal wine, and/or how to use the powdered herbs. We will supply a list of herbal ingredients plus instructions on traditionally recommended dosage.
