The Medicine Chest; Part 1 July 16 10-2pm
Nourishing herbal infusions are the mainstay of my herbal practice. But I travel with fast-acting tinctures. Take a peek into my medicine bag as I share with you my favorite first-aid remedies: the ones I don’t leave home without. Part one will focus on comfrey, plantain, St. Joan’s wort, motherwort, and skullcap.
You may take either part of this class.
The Medicine Chest; Part 2 July 17 10-2pm
Although I prefer to use herbs to nourish health, sometimes fast action is needed. What tinctures do I consider essential? Join me for part two of My Herbal Medicine Chest. I’ll share my thoughts on and experiences with yarrow, Echinacea, poke root, and wormwood.
You may take either part of this class without taking the other part.
