The most frequent disorders such as contusions, wounds, burns, etc. are those that we can cure through the use of these plants. The use of these natural medicines will not have side effects as they are not chemical drugs, as long as their usage is not abused.
Spend a day surrounded by nature
We will enter the fields where we will get to know the plants and the surroundings where they tend to grow. These plants will also be collected for us to learn about their usage. We will create a herbarium where we will store all the plants located. We will learn to identify plants to create our homemade medicine cabinet made with natural remedies such as oils, ointments, creams, etc. and finally we will learn about the plants that can be eaten and we will taste infusions and decoctions. You will discover some techniques to collect, dry and store these plants.
This course will last about 10 hours and will include food that will be made with collected edible plants. At the end of the course, if you feel like it, you can stay for our celebration of San Juan, where you will have a great time.
