According to the Sensation Method
, patients who need a remedy from the plant kingdom express themselves in opposite polarities. One sensation and the opposite can be observed.
For the mint family (Lamiaceae
) themes like excitement, exhilaration, rush of ideas, vivacity etc. can stand on one site and the other site shows i.e. themes like calmness, numbness, disinterest etc.
Many plants from the mint family belong to the traditional mediterranean kitchen herbs (thyme, rosemary, basil). These herbs lend joy, flavor and color to cooking. Others, like Lavender (s. below) are well know for their ability to calm one down.
In preparation for the upcoming issue of Spectrum for Homeopathy „Lamiaceae and Piperaceae“
, I was focussing my photography on plants from the mint family over the last weeks.
