Herbal Energetics: How flavour informs the therapeutic affect of herbs

Materia Medica & Plant Energetics

Flavours have more than an influence on how a plant preparation tastes, they have specific actions and therapeutic indications that influence where, how and what the plant influences. In this talk we will explore the main flavours that are present in medicinal herbs and how that gives us a strong indication as to the areas of the body in which it will have the most influence. We will discuss the movements of the flavours, combinations, and how knowing the plant energetics can help with informing more accurate recommendations for our clients.

Learning outcomes:

  • Learn the main flavours present in herbs
  • Learn their direction of flow, meridian & organ influences
  • We will explore many different commonly used plants and discuss their energetics
