We believe that developing an awareness of herb quality should be an integral part of Oriental Medicine education. We believe that Plum Flower® products represent the highest standard of Chinese herbs available in the United States today and that they should be the benchmark used for educational purposes in the colleges of Oriental Medicine. To support OM Colleges in their efforts to provide students a high quality education, Mayway offers educational tools and programs that provide the best opportunity for students to consolidate their learning in the classroom with their experience in the clinic.
Herb ID Kits
Our premium student Herb ID Kits feature unparalleled quality and value. The kit contains approximately 350 herb samples supplied in a small re-sealable plastic bag and is accompanied by a flash card with a photo of the herb and pertinent information including Names, Functions, Properties, and Channel Tropism.
The kits are very student-friendly and come in twelve easy to use 3-ring binders, arranged by the categories of Bensky’s Materia Medica.
Kits can be purchased individually by students, or purchased en mass and distributed by the College for each academic term. When the College arranges for the purchase of 10 or more Herb ID Kits, the College will receive a discounted price, free shipping for the kits, and Mayway will furnish the teacher of the course a complimentary Kit for use in the classroom.
Complete sets of Herb ID Cards without herb samples are also available for sale, and are presented in a single three-ring binder.(Herb ID Kit: Product code HKIT; Herb ID Cards: Product code HKIT1)
