The Cape Floral Kingdom is home to over 9000 different species. Over an hour, Giselle Courtney will introduce you to eight of those species – including honeybush, buchu, snow bush, rooibos, cancer bush and rose pelargonium – in a variety of teas, infusions, cordials and boozy digestifs. The presentation is beautiful and the explanations of the plants' health properties fascinating.
You'll be given samples to take home with you and there are more for sale at the visitor centre shop. The apothecary workshop lasts 3 hours and includes making your own oil-based scents, face masks and other body lotions.
