Traditionally Chinese herbs were taken as a decoction, meaning that you would boil raw herbs and drink the liquid that remained after straining the herbs. At Awaken Wellness our primary form for custom formulation is a powder or granule based form of the herb. Patients have found that this it is an easier way to take Chinese herbal medicine. It is transportable and you don’t have to cook any herbs. We also offer Chinese herbs in pill form, tinctures, and select raw herbs.
