"For every human illness, somewhere in the world there exists a plant which is the cure. I believe that there is a healing potential locked inside plants which is integral with their evolution, just as it is part of human evolution to learn to tap this wonderful gift of nature." Rudolf Steiner
The idea surrounding the healing ritual is one of natural power. Remembering that pharmaceutical, chemically based medicine have been derived from plants, we can begin to reteach ourselves the pure magic that is natural medicine - going back to the roots (literally) to utilise the healing power of plants in their purest form.
