During the Dragon Boat Festival, many places in the country have a custom called “Expel the five poisons to guarantee safety”.

The totems of the five animals, which were recreated by us, are printed on the packing box and sculptured on the container.

Originally, they look dark and horrible, but the new image and color design gives them a sense of dignity and mystery. The packing box resembles the drawer where traditional Chinese medicines are placed to emphasize the pharmacological function of the product.
