Event description

Description

Herbal medicines have been used widely around the globe, and Britain has a historical heritage in the use of herbs from a range of diverse cultures, such as Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine as well as British herbalism. Over 80% of people in the world use herbs for healthcare, in addition to them using seasoning and in cosmetics. Herbs have been integrated into our way of life but how do we use the herbs without potential risks and misunderstanding of their medicinal value?

“Herbal Medicines: Myth and Reality” is a workshop that will answer the question and will empower our participants to utilise our herbal knowledge in daily life easily. The participants will not only be able to learn from the interactive talks delivered by professionals but also from other audience members sharing their herbal knowledge in group discussion.

The workshop will be held on 10th March (Public, refreshment provided) for herbalists and the people who are interested in herbs to interact. The interactive talk speaker will be Dr. Linda Anderson who is an Expert Pharmaceutical Assessor in Licensing Division and has specific responsibility for herbal products. Another interactive talk will be from Prof Michael Heinrich, who has been researching ethnopharmacology and quality of herbal products more than 20 years. We will also have herbal hand cream crafting workshop from Dr. Pauline Hili who is the founder and director of Natural Products Factory, and one of the UK's top organic skincare experts.
