Things to Avoid When Doing Moxa: #2
When using a traditional moxa roll, to protect yourself most of all, for God’s sake, please remove the colored outside wrapper! It is often died with lead based colors, and burning the wrapper of just one entire moxa roll in an enclosed room is enough to create lead poisoning in a child. Burning many such wrapped traditional moxa rolls over the course of many years of practice is going to put a serious crimp in your plans for living into a healthy old age. This is not just idle chatter. I sent moxa roll wrappers off to a testing lab and they came back heavily contaminated with lead.
