Introduction to the Art of Herbalism
Join us in learning the basic fundamentals of herbalism and how to incorporate
healing plants into your daily life. Participants will learn to choose and store
healing herbs while discovering the art of creating simple teas, extracts, oils and
balms for home care products.
Our medicinal plants have been used for thousands of years to promote health
and well being; a practice that has been reawakening as we endeavor to be more
natural in our self – care. Come and learn what they can do for you and how fun
and easy making home remedies can be!
Participants will leave with an herbal remedy to use at home.
