Herbal Medicine in Slovenia
A Flower For Each Disease
A study of herbal medicine in Slovenia. The use of herbal medicine is widespread in Slovenia, and on visits to friends in rural areas you’ll often encounter drying rooms or tables covered with leaves and flowers, the specimens gathered from gardens or the wild, to be later stored in jars and turned into teas for various ailments, or left to soak in alcohol for a certain pick-me-up.
If you don’t know anyone who can give you some of the products of such work, or lack the confidence to be your own herbalist, then you can always buy a supply of dried plant materials from a professional, like Terezija Nikolič who sells herbal remedies in the Ljubljana market (her stall is by the entrance to the fish market).
