This course will enable you to build up a Herbal Home Medicine Chest which will help everyone in the family from baby to grand-parents. Learn which plants you will need to have to hand when life throws a spanner in the works. Be ready with your herbal medicine chest, all prepared for cuts and scrapes, insect bites and stings, burns, cuts and wounds and something to soothe, calm and reduce stress during any situation. Find out which plants are close by for headaches, indigestion, sleeplessness and anxiety, toothache and more. We will also touch on some edible plants that can be foraged. Today’s course is intense – bring pen and paper- and find out how to prepare for the unexpected.
You will learn how to make simple herbal remedies, infusions, tinctures and salves; compresses, poultices and oils and what you will need to make these remedies. Bring a small jam jar as you will take a remedy home with you.
I prepare a vegetarian lunch but please bring something small to share so that we all nourish one another.
