Traditional Oven-Drying Technique:

To sterilize the medicine, use high pressure and temperatures, which necessitates a large workshop as well as costly air conditioning equipment. Furthermore, sterilization should be performed at high pressure and temperature. It converts external heat energy to internal heat energy. It takes a long time to heat herbs evenly. According to research, the plant's structure does not lend itself as well to high-temperature drying as expensive air conditioning equipment.
