Designed in 2000, this garden’s educational aspect complements the aesthetic and recreational bias of the Thermal Park. Situated at the heart of the park, it includes around forty little-known or forgotten traditional plants such as absinthe, rue, red and green basil, etc.
The essential oils contained in these aromatic plants confer gustative (taste), olfactive (smell) and aromatic as well as medicinal properties.
Since the aromatic components of the plants are volatile at room temperature, a plant’s multitude of perfumes: floral, herbaceous, lemony, aniseed, etc. can be inhaled.
Odour is the sensation transmitted when we smell a food by nose, it is aspirated air. Aroma is sensed when a food is chewed in the mouth and the air from the mouth rises to the nose. Taste is the sensation we perceive through the tongue, when we have food in our mouth, for example mustard, which stings. And each of our senses (sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch) is active in the perception of plants.
If you would like to know more about culinary aromatic plants, come and visit this garden where odours, aromas and tastes are there to be discovered!
