The medicinal plant lady, Brigitte Waser-Bürgi offers not only a herb hike of 1.5 hours, but also a daily herb course "Making your own remedies", team building with herb menu cooking and herb walks into the high moor.
Many herbs that grow on our doorstep are well-known medicinal plants that help us to stay healthy. During the lecture you will get to know eight local medicinal plants which you can use as tea, compress, tincture or ointment. Homemade remedies for home use will be shown during the lecture. Tea, ointments, syrups, tinctures, emulsion, liqueur, thick juices and much more.
Many plants that grow right on our doorsteps help us stay healthy throughout the year, even on a budget. On the walk you will learn about their healing properties and dangers.
Learn in one day how to make your own remedies for home use. Using plants from the surrounding area, you will learn the theoretical and practical basics of making remedies for home use. A cough syrup, wine extract and an ointment will be made. In the morning we collect a few herbs, then we are indoors for the whole course day. Culinary herbs will be added to lunch and the break meals.
You will learn many interesting things about medicinal plants that grow in Sattel. Which ones are allowed in risotto, or can be used as a remedy? Which ones are simply there to be admired? The hike takes place in the morning. The simple lunch, a 4-course herbal menu, will be cooked together with the collected plants.
