Ngobe tribe medicinal plants

Isabelle, the medicine woman from San Cristobal, and Mathilde (Darkland Foundation), know everything about the medicinal power of the jungle plants. During a 2 hours hike, they show us at least 10 plants that can keep you out of hospital. This knowledge goes down generations of the Ngobe tribe. Again, we learn from their respect in working with nature, using only what you need.

Isabel and Mathilde reveal the healing secrets of the jungle plants during a 2 hours hike….
… and when we came back from the hike, a great lunch was ready for us.

This was the second blog on our visit to San Cristobal. You can also read the article on making jungle bags (from dyeing the plants to crochet).
