There are many mountains and hills. The rock in Ruyang Dahuling area is volcanic rock, formed in the Cenozoic Era, which is 65 million years ago. With years of geological changes and weathered deposition, there are rich minerals and micro elements such as strontium, zinc, selenium and boron on the surface of the soil in Dahuling area. According to monitoring, the levels of zinc, selenium and eucalyptus oil in Luli Moxa is 1 to 3 times higher than those of the national medicine standards. These unique natural environment and geological conditions formed Dukang mineral water, which is the qualified resource for Dukang wine. They also make the micro elements level in Luli Moxa higher than that in other kinds of moxa. The fiber of moxa is long. The light wave penetration is different for different minerals during the burning of moxa, which enhances the penetration of medical ingredients such as eucalyptus oil and therefore increase the effect of moxa, creating more fragrant smell and more sweet taste.
