Moxibustion (Moxa) is the crushed leaves of Artemesia arygi Folium. This herb is used internally in decoctions, topically in salves and liniments, and is burned above the skin for its healing and warming properties. The burning of moxa is strong to stimulate healing, alleviate pain, and restore function.
