If you are interested in the changes in the use of herbs throughout the centuries to the present day, then this is the weekend for you. You will walk in the herb garden at Denman and visit the Oxford Botanic Gardens to enjoy the herb borders, with practical plant identification included.
You'll explore the uses of herbs for medicine in Europe from the 1st century AD, considering some magical attributes and changes in their use, early European Botanical gardens, manuscripts, plus the influence of 16th and 17th century herbalists and their books. Plants used in herbal and pharmaceutical medicine, aromatherapy and homeopathy will also be considered.
