Classic Herbal Formulas

As part of our herbal pharmacy, we stock an assortment of classic formulas with each of our classic herbal combinations coming out of ancient China. The herbs in each formula are prepared together following the classical decocting methods and then dehydrated into a granular form. Typically one or two or these formulas are used as the base formula and then are augmented with the addition of single herbs to customize the formula for the individual.
