Air Purifying Herb Bags

These Chinese herb bags arrived yesterday.

They are one of the preventative measures being recommended in China to prevent Coronavirus infection*.

While they are being sold as air purifying bags, what they are actually intended to do is help boost the body’s immunity, push pathogens out.

These bags evaporate essential oils into the air, some of which have antiviral properties. They can be used either attached to your clothes, or hung in your house or car. They should be disposed of after two weeks. Each bag contains 28g (7 herbs, 4g each), so could be split in half if being used attached to your clothes, as per the guidelines of 2g per herb for a wearable bag.

The herbs are Dian Xiang, Fang Feng, Jing Jie, Cang Zhu, Rou Gui, Xin Yi Hua, Bai Dou Kou.
