Essential tools for practicing homeopathy, the art of healing through natural remedies, this Mortar and Pestle Set offers effortless preparation of herbal and homeopathic remedies. Simply place item into the mortar bowl. Hold the pestle by the handle and, using a firm pressure, make a circular stirring-like motion to grind the item. Harder items, like peppercorns, may need a firm but gentle tap with the pestle to crack the surface before being ground. Helen Chen's Pestle and mortar are crafted from 100-percent natural bamboo to be lightweight, strong, and less absorbent than wood. Although bamboo is technically a grass, its tensile strength is comparable to that of steel, making it extremely strong and durable. It regenerates through a vast root system without need of replanting and boasts a record-breaking growth rate that surpasses any other known plant. For these reasons, bamboo is considered among the world's greatest renewable resources and the alternative used over traditional materials for the sustainable design of eco-friendly products, making these biodegradable forks perfect for those concerned about more sustainable living. Rinse in warm water immediately after each use. Shake off any excess water. Do not use soap as bamboo will absorb aromas and flavors. Dry thoroughly before storing.
