Alternative medicine. Assortment of alternative medical therapies. They include homeopathic tablets, jasmine aromatherapy oil (bottle at top right), healing quartz crystals (at bottom right) and flowers of the herb rosemary (at upper centre).

Healing crystals are believed to contain positive energy which can be channelled from healer to sufferer. It is claimed that massaging with aromatherapy oils or heating them on a burner relieves various problems. Herbs have traditionally been used to treat illness.
