Herb of the Month


Ru Xiang - Frankincense - Olibanum

    Ru Xiang

Ru Xiang enters the Heart, Liver, and Spleen Meridians.  It invigorates the blood, promotes the movement of Qi, and helps to generate flesh.  It is an excellent herb for treating pain and sores from traumatic injury, alleviates pain, and alleviates painful obstruction, rigidity, and spasms.   

To see if Ru Xiang is right for your, call PIHMA clinic today at 602.274.1885 for an Herbal Consultation. Because everyone is different, raw herbs are only sold after consultation with an herbal intern to create the appropriate formula for you.
