A sniff at Chinese Herbal Medicine

In this video Dr. Andrew Flower, WCA founder and principal, introduced the concepts of Chinese herbal medicine to a varied audience at the International College of Oriental Medicine (ICOM) in February 2018. Andrew took us through some of his favourite herbs. We tasted them, sniffed them, discussed their individual properties and explored how they could be combined. Andrew’s enthusiasm, knowledge and wisdom had us all captivated.
