Chinese herbal medicine covers a broad spectrum from herbs that do double duty as food and medicine to toxic roots that are used in very small doses. Traditional methods of preparation include decoctions, powders, honey pills, wine tonics and topical applications. Here at BItter Roots  we make traditional Chinese formulas into alcohol or glycerin based extracts for internal use as well as raw powder formulas (san), salves and liniments for topical use. We will also make custom formulas
