Aimed at young people and advertised as non-scarring, these tubes are used for moxibustion. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the burning of moxa (the Artemisia vulgaris plant) on the skin is believed to stimulate and unblock the flow of qi (chi), or energy in the body, considered essential for wellbeing. The box was collected from the surgery of a British practitioner of moxibustion in the 1990s.
