An infusion or an aperitif of Swiss medicinal plants will be offered to the participants at the end of the workshop.

Different Modules are available:

  1. Medicinal Plants for Pain Relief
  2. Plants and Relaxation Molecules
  3. Anti-microbial Molecules  
  4. Memory & Concentration 

A hands-on workshops to learn
