Coronavirus may be spread like the flu. The virus may travel upon water droplets in the air, which are dispersed when an infected individual sneezes or coughs. These water droplets may come into contact with the individual’s hands or any objects around them. Along with boosting our immune systems, purifying the air in our homes may help us to reduce our chances of contracting coronavirus or the general cold and flu.
Here is a 100% natural way to detoxify the air in your home or place of work:
Make herbal bags to put around your home
Making your own herbal bags can be a safe and easy way to help detoxify the air in your home. This herbal formula has been recommended by herbalists in China, who are involved in the treatment of Coronavirus. Ingredients include fragrant herbs such as Mugwort Leaf (Ai Ye), Patchouli (Huo Xiang), Cloves (Ding Xiang) and Peppermint (Bo He).
Ingredients – (available to purchase in our online shop)
- Ai Ye (Mugwort/Folium Artemisiae Argyi) – 10-15g (currently out of stock in Feb 2020, we recommend moxa punk as an alternative)
- Shi Chang Pu (Sweetflag Rhizome/Rhizoma Acori Tatarinowii) – 10g
- Cang Zhu (Black Atractylodes/Rhizoma Atractylodis) – 10g
- Ding Xiang (Clove/Flos Caryophylli) – 10g

- Combine the herbs in a bowl. For the best results, you can grind the herbs using a pestle and mortar to maximise surface area – this will allow essential oils to evaporate more effectively.
- Mix well and separate the ground herbs into 10 cloth or muslin bags.
- Place in various areas of your home to purify the air.
