Folk Healing Festival (Mt. Bandilaan View Park)

This is a time when herbalists all over Visayas and Mindanao come to Siquijor to participate in the preparation of concoctions believed to have effective healing powers. Ingredients including tree bark, roots,  herbs, and insects are gathered on Good Friday from forests, caves, and cemeteries. Preparation takes place on Black Saturday when the herbalists crowd together in a circle and cook their mixtures. They are also famous for producing love potions known to charm people and bring good luck.

Healing will be done through pulse consultation, smoke herbal healing, ritual healing, hilot or traditional massage. They also sell herbal oils as liniment or for protection and love potions as well.
