There are many alternative therapies that attribute medicinal properties to plants – aromatherapy, flower therapy, herbal medicine, to name but a few... The healing properties of plants has long been the subject of much debate – mostly, no doubt, because no one can prove empirically whether such properties exist. Aromatherapy has become a familiar addition to today’s beauty parlours. Many of us accept that essential oils (derived mainly from plant materials) may improve health – physical, emotional or mental. In Flower Therapy (established by Dr Bach in the 1930s) there are 38 wild flowers that are believed to contain properties that can heal emotional, as well as physical, symptoms. The theory being that many physical symptoms have their genesis in the sufferer’s emotional or mental state. The link between emotional and physical well-being is nothing new, but do flowers really contain substances that can alleviate the former to heal the latter? It’s an intriguing theory and one that’s worth exploring... If you want to find out more about the therapeutic properties of plants and flowers, why not sign up to one of ADL’s home study courses?
