Paarl Museum

TEMPORARY MEDICINAL PLANTS EXHIBITION

Paarl Museum is hosting a temporary, traveling display about medicinal plants in the foyer. The exhibition aims to educate the public regarding the benefits and disadvantages of plants.

Herbal remedies utilize plants for their therapeutic or medicinal value. Throughout the ages, plants used to be our primary source of medicine. Historic evidence suggests that they have been used by all cultures and still provide us with new remedies. Although herbal medicine has been practiced for millennia, the scientific analyses of the traditionally reported benefits remain insufficient.
