Zgornja Savinjska Dolina

Herbs and Forest Fruits

Narava uči, zdravi in krepi. V izjemnem okolju Savinjske in Šaleške doline uspevajo številne rastline, ki jih zeliščarji po starodavnih vaških zdravilskih modrostih mešajo v čaje, olja in domače kozmetične pripravke.

Nature teaches, heals and strengthens. In the exceptional environment of the Savinja and Šaleška valleys, numerous plants and herbs grow, that are then mixed in teas, oils and homemade cosmetic prepared by herbalists according to the ancient practices.
