Mortar and pestle made with kiln fired ceramic, or natural carved stone, is used to grind plants into a powder. The morter and pestle can be viewed as symbol of natural health, associated with naturopathic doctors, and alternative medicine. Natural medicine's primary ethical code dictates that treaments of illness and disease must "do no harm."
