Herbal Traditions Report, IDDS Amazon

Aug 30, 2016

A team of participants at IDDS Amazon developed several approaches to preserve the tradition of herbal baths and treatments in the Boa Vista do Acará community. These approaches included a sensory herb trail for tourists to learn more about local plants and biodiversity, a library of medicinal recipes with an audio guide including stories from the older generation collected by youth in the community, and a method for steam distillation for Priprioca oil extraction.

This report was written and filed by a team of participants at IDDS Amazon. It aims to share information and knowledge gleaned from the team’s work during the summit.
