The workshops aimed to introduce students to the characteristics of medicinal plants and how to use the plants for primary healthcare. Herbal inhalants, commonly known as Yadom, have grown in popularity among teenagers. As a result, Yadom was employed as a medicinal plant learning medium. Students learnt about the properties of herbal components of inhalants based on traditional Thai medicine recipes and then created their own herbal inhalant. Yadom offers a number of advantages, including the ability to open the nasal passages and provide a pleasant experience. It is also believed to help fight fatigue, stay alert, refreshed, and energized. It does, however, have some drawbacks, including nose irritation.
