How to prepare a therapeutic ointment, what is ‘infusing oil’, and which are the best plants to relieve a cough? All these and more taught in a special seminar that took place in the Botanical Garden last June. The activity, which included a lecture and workshop, was held by the Israeli Association of Medicinal Plants, under the instruction of Boaz Zur, a certified herbalist.
In the Botanical Garden the participants were introduced to the different medicinal plants, some of which are native to Israel. Under Boaz's guidance they prepared some special and useful remedies.
Warning: It is not advisable to practice herbal medicine at home without proper knowledge. Some plants are highly toxic and can be harmful!
