In our own backyard, California mugwort, Artemesia douglasiana, is prolific and endemic. This course will teach you how to identify, wildcraft, and process the leaves into moxa that you can use in your very own practice. This course will teach you the unique properties of California mugwort, when to use California moxa versus Chinese moxa, and even discusses in detail how to use the plant for internal use. Experience the true joy of being an herbalist by learning to handcraft the very herbs you use to heal your patients. This course is available for continuing education credit for California, Florida, and NCCAOM. If you need us to report to CE Broker (Florida), PLEASE email us when you are done with the course and quiz:
