Threatened and Near-Threatened Medicinal and Aromatic Plants used in Aromatic Herbalism, Aromatherapy and Perfumery
This short workshop will introduce you to at least 18% of globally traded medicinal and aromatic plants used in aromatic herbalism, aromatherapy and perfumery – which are facing extinction. It is our responsibility to be aware of who these plants are so that we can work with them respectfully and responsibly. Having an understanding of these fragile species and where they are threatened in this world, is a step to making wiser decisions about how or if we use these species in our practices. This not only can help to protect these plants now, but also their sustainable use by future generations.
3 learning objectives:
- which commonly traded medicinal and aromatic plants are currently facing extinction
- where these fragile species are recognized as threatened or near threatened globally
- use this information to support ethically sourcing plant material
