Herbal Medicine Making Class
The Herbal Medicine Making class just finished on Sunday and it was a resounding success. This is one of my favorite classes to teach and is one of the highlights of the year. I love transforming all of the plant material that we harvest each summer into high quality herbal medicines. As a group we managed to make 3 lip balms, 4 healing salves and roughly 10 different tinctures! It is a very 'hands-on' experience and we go through each step of the process so that participants can go home with the knowledge and experience to do this on thier own. It feels good to share this information and plant wisdom with people and this years group of students was eager to learn and showed great passion and enthusiasm for learning about herbal medicine. I thank everyone who came to the class and look forward to next year when we will do it all over again.
