Nature and Environment
Herbs are fascinating plants, because they are true all-rounders. They smell, they taste good and they possess healing powers. Since the begin of mankind, they fascinate men and cultures all over the world, particularly because of their effects. For centuries, people living in remote Alpine valleys had no other possibility than to trust in the healing power of nature. The knowledge about herbs was deeply rooted in the everyday life of the mountain dwellers, until it was pushed aside by the modern academic medicine. Today, the Alpine herbs live a renaissance. The treasures of the local nature enter into public awareness, and the potential of Alpine herbs is by far not exhausted.
