About the Wu Lou: The Wu Lou, in its original form, is a gourd vessel traditionally used to store medicine or water which is is how it got its name “giver of life”. The Wu Lou is a powerful traditional symbol of longevity, good health, prosperity and an abundance of blessings.
The Wu Lou is also said to have the ability to absorb/dissolve bad chi which makes it a powerful protective totem to have on hand. According to mythology, monks and deities of the Taoist belief made use of the gourd, trapping negative presences inside to prevent them from causing harm. This is where the Wu Lou got the ideology of being able to absorb negative chi in your surrounding.
