|On Tuesday, August 20th, 1:00pm-3:00pm, the Itaewon Global Village Center will hold a “[Summer Special] Herbal Vacance” at the Seoul Herbal Medicine Museum.
The program consists of three different activities:
Herbal Foot Bath (Ice Herbal tea / fan coloring) (30 mins)
Herb Medicine Museum Tour (1 hour)
Cinnamon Bug Repellant Spray DIY Class (30 mins)
Takjok (Kor. 탁족, Chin. 濯足, lit. washing feet) is a traditional way of dealing with the summer heat by going to a stream in a mountain valley and dipping one’s feet in its cool waters. We will experience Takjok by taking a herbal foot bath. While taking a foot bath, iced herbal tea will be served.
There are three different kinds of tea, and you will be asked to choose one beforehand (식혜sikhye : Sweet rice punch / 매실차maesil-cha : Green plum tea / 레몬에이드 : Lemonade). While enjoying tea and herbal foot bath, you can color your fan as a souvenir.
After that, we will go for a tour the Herb Medicine Museum. Other activities will be available here (wearing doctors/nurses’ clothes in old time & making rubbed copies, Takbon).
The last but not least, you will make a Cinnamon bug repellant spray with natural ingredients.
Let’s enjoy Herbal Vacance to help us fight the summer heat!
The fee would be 8,000 won (per participant). You can sign up in person or by email only. (Only Foreigners can join this program.)
