About the Book
Samara White, LAc and Troy White are the owners of Mugwort Media. Samara, the author, is a licensed acupuncturist. Troy is the Illustrator. Mugwort Media is focused on promoting awareness in children of the fun side of holistic and traditional medicine. We want to empower kids with a deeper understanding of their bodies and their connection to the world around them. The name "Mugwort" comes from the Mugwort plant (artemesia argyi), which is an herb utilized in Chinese medicine for warming and pain relief. As some of our young test readers showed us, kids simply love to say the word "mugwort." It has been know to make adults smile, too.
