                              HERBAL MEDICINE MAKING

“Herbal medicine – making is much like dancing it’s easy, it’s natural, and it 

                   is undeniably delightful.”—James Green, Herbalist

This class is informative and experiential, especially important because no matter how many herb books you read,  classes you take, webinars, etc..all which are wonderful and beneficial…..But,  unless you have actual hands on experience with the herbs…it is hard to really embody it.

     In this class you will learn  to prepare many simple methods of formulating herbal remedies;  how to choose and store plants; proper uses; proper doses and much, much more.   You will take home product, recipes, hand outs and lots of information so that you can start your own Apothecary/Medicine chest.  So come prepared to make herbal medicine!!!

            FAMILY HERBALISTS  ~~  MAINTAINING HEALTHY CHILDREN

          This is the question…..How do we get our kids to take herbs  and how do we know what is safe, what to use when and in what dosage??? 

          We have designed this class to answer all these questions and more…You will learn how to get your child interested in, not only taking herbal medicine, but learning about  herbs, through stories, puzzles, and songs.  In that way, we can teach our children about the wonderful benefits of herbs while they are being healed…….  And, if all else fails, we learn how to make them taste good in many ways.  Learning which are the tried and true “go to” herbs for cough, colds, ear aches, tummy aches, scratches, bruises and all sorts of “boo boos”, will be our main focus.

            There will be hand-outs: herbal puzzles, games  & songs;  recipes that are kid friendly and stories that you can share with your children.

     Finally, it is being acknowledged that men’s and boy’s bodies are just as complex as women’s and that men have many concerns about their health—–they just deal with them in a different way.  In the past it was not considered “manly” to be sick, or worse emotional…it was always that “get tough, stay tough and cowboy up” mentality.

FAMILY HERBALISTS ~~  HERBAL CARE FOR YOUR PETS
