23 June 2018 - Sansepolcro (AR)

ST. JOHN'S miraculous herbs

• Afternoon of 23 June

Visit Aboca medicinal herb gardens to learn about organic rosemary and lavender cultivation, two plants that along with St. John's wort and rue, were used to prepare "St. John's Water", which was said to have many therapeutic benefits. After the tour of the medicinal herb gardens is complete, the doors to experimentation will be thrown wide open in the museum's herbalist laboratory, where visitors will be invited to delve into the world of apothecaries and pharmacists, preparing a soothing ointment.

• Evening visit 23 June

The St. John's wort, rue and lavender on display at the Aboca Museum reveal the magical healing properties of the so-called "herbs of St. John" which, when gathered on the night of June 24th, the day of the summer solstice, were believed to cure many ailments. 

 

COST: 17€ per adult - 12€ for children aged 6 and above
