Herbal Medicine Week


Herbal Medicine Week is an annual celebration of herbal medicine. Members of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists hold events throughout the UK to raise awareness of the scope and benefits of herbal medicine. These include walks to help you identify medicines growing around you, and talks and workshops where you could learn to make some simple medicines or how herbal medicine can help improve your health. 

Herbal Medicine Week has finished for 2017 - look out for next year's events from 16th to 24th June 2018.
