The traditional method of using Chinese herbs is to create “custom formulas”.
These formulas are designed to bring your body into balance, and to help it to achieve maximum health at any given time.
What forms do these come in?
Raw Herbs-Traditionally, a tea is formulated by combining 6-20 different herbs,totaling about 120 grams.
See our Custom Formula Cooking Directions for more details on the preparation.
It usually does not taste great, but is definitely the way to attain the maximum affect from the herbs.
Tinctures- these are our standard tinctures , pressure cooked with alcohol and water at a low temperature.
Capsules- these are again prepared with the same method as all Four Season’s Capsules- no fillers just concentrated herbs.
