Herbs in the Greek Tradition

Since Galen and Dioscorides, Greek healing practices using herbs native to the Mediterranean have shaped Western botanical medicine. While herbs are still a part of everyday life in Greece, it is a form of herbalism deeply rooted in Orthodox rituals and culinary tradition. We will look at how medicinal preparations like teas, oils, and liqueurs are made with herbs you may already know, like sage, rosemary, and thyme, and how bitter greens and aromatic herbs can be integrated into healing protocols.

Drawing on her Greek heritage and years of traveling and teaching in Greece, Patricia will inspire attendees to rethink the way they use aromatic herbs, along with practical suggestions for incorporating them into their herbal practice and kitchen.
