First Aid

The Modern Herb Shop carries many products that assist in acute injuries and "first aid" situations.

Some of the most useful first aid products are:

  • Boo Boo Balm - organic herbs provide natural antibiotic action to quickly soothe and speed the healing cuts, scrapes, abrasions, rashes, and burns.
  • Ching Wan Hung Burn Ointment - invaluable in the kitchen - this ointment stops burn pain almost immediately and is excellent on all types and degrees of burns
  • Dit Da Jow Bruise Liniment - provides pain relief and reduces swelling on all manner of bumps, bruises and swelling caused by impact injuries
  • Po Chai Pills - the fastest relief for indigestion and hangover - these pills also reduce nausea from radiation therapy and motion sickness
  • San Huang San Herbal Ice - magically reduces swelling from the trauma of sprains and strains - far more effective than the traditional ice pack

Go to the bottom of this page and you will find a list of items that will make up a fairly complete Chinese Sports Medicine First Aid Kit.
