The journey to living a chemical-free life begins with you. However, herbal medicine is no longer commonly practiced and is considered a lost art. This makes it difficult for those who seek to learn this necessary skill. Taking control of your food source is necessary to consume a clean food source, much like herbalism is necessary for those who seek to treat ailments more naturally.
Ask yourself these questions:
How do you help keep your family healthy? How can you treat a burn or a bug bite naturally? Do you know the best natural regimen to help reduce inflammation, upset stomach, or even fatigue?
If you are unsure of the answers to the questions above, this workshop is for you.
Salves and Tinctures
Salves are some of the oldest solutions humans used to help with itching, dryness, wound care, and pain management. They are generally made up of fresh or dried herbs, oil, and wax. The herbs are steeped in the oil for some time. Once the steeping process is complete a small amount of the oil infusion is added to hot wax and then left to set.
Tinctures on the other hand only began being used around 1000 AD when alcohol began being distilled by the ancient Egyptians. Tinctures are an easy way to pull the medicinal properties out of the plant in highly concentrated form.
Both of these medicinal options are incredibly helpful skills to have when approaching a more natural lifestyle.

This hands-on salves and tinctures workshop will not only lay out the groundwork you need but help you to feel comfortable as you begin your herbal journey.

Each workshop participant will be taking home a salve and a tincture with instructions on how to properly use them.
