I have just returned from a pharmacy, but not from the grey building in the middle of the city. I came back from the healing meadows full of herbs. In my family the tradition of foraging, herbs harvesting and using medicinal herbs has strong roots. Visit Herbal Rooms Homestay from spring to late autumn. My mother, father and me, experienced herb-pickers, will take you to the healing pastures and show you how to identify and collect wild-gathered herbs (rose-hips, wild thyme, yarrow, etc.). Fill the basket with fresh picked aromatic plants and gently spread them on the wooden nets. Prepare a tea blend from the medicinal plants of your choice from the jars full of hand-selected herbs, unsurpassed in taste, aroma and color. Look, feel, smell and, with a cup of tea, also taste our flourishing pastures in pure and unspoiled nature in Soca valley.
