What is Phytotherapy?

Phytotherapy is a method of treating, alleviating and preventing diseases and ailments by using whole medicinal plants or their parts (flowers, leaves, roots, etc.) and using ingredients (essential oils, extracts and other isolates) as well as finished preparations (teas, tinctures, ointments, capsule).

The individual approach to each client is intended to create a foundation in the field of phytotherapy and aromatherapy. Clients will also gain insight into the many personal benefits these branches of complementary medicine provide through workshops where they make simple preparations themselves.

Relax and learn more about the healing properties of essential oils and herbal oils, such as teas and tinctures, whose beneficial effects affect the entire body. Balance and rejuvenate your body and mind naturally with phytotherapy products.
