Phytoembryotherapy is a combination of two words: phytotherapy and embryo. Phytotherapy uses plant extracts to promote health and well-being. In this case, embryo refers to buds and young shoots, which are the embryonic plant tissues.
Putting it together, Phytoembryotherapy simply refers to the therapeutic use of active ingredients found in plant buds and shoots. When the buds are harvested, they are rich sources of beneficial plant hormones, enzymes, and nucleic acids, as well as the phytonutrients found in mature plants. Using buds produces a more powerful herbal medication.
During this 4-hour workshop, Penny will explain which essential oils are from embryonic plant material, and also how to macerate buds and shoots in alcohol, vegetable oil and water to use for everyday health.

What to Wear?
Students at the Academy are encouraged to be relaxed and at ease. For this reason, it is recommended loose comfortable trousers and tops are worn that enable easy movement and do not restrict the body. All loose tops and shirts should be tucked in to prevent ‘trailing’ on the client for practical courses. Shoes should be flat-heeled and comfortable.
