stocking your herbal medicine cabinet
This comprehensive and fast-paced program teaches the many ways herbals can be brought into our lives and kept handy to use in a moment’s notice. Here you learn which herbs help you be prepared for first aid emergencies in your own home and familiarize yourself with the vast healing potential of common and local plants.
Time-honored techniques of making tinctures, salves, infusions, decoctions, poultices, as well as capsules are a few of the topics covered. In-depth attributes of our most useful plants are discussed as we put together a complete "green" kit. Students will return home with many hand outs for future reference along with a vast assortment of herbal creations to put to use as needed.
This program is a wonderful balance of hands on-workshops paired with informative lecture and memorable anecdotes. Join us to create and stock your own herbal medicine cabinet!
