"Many people think of plants as purely ornamental, something to brighten up back gardens and window boxes, but in this six-part series, ethnobotanist
James Wong demonstrates how to transform familiar plants into simple natural remedies that could help ease the symptoms of minor everyday ailments, as
well as how to make some pampering beauty treatments.
In this opening episode, James reveals that there is more to some fruit than just the nutritional value. He uses figs to relieve constipation, hops
for a good night's sleep, turns kiwis and papayas into a soothing face mask and makes an immunity-boosting soup for a cold - and all from things that
might be found in any fruit bowl.
James tries out his remedies on members of the public, with some surprising results."
Well worth watching seeing as nature provides so much medicine.
