There is nothing quite as empowering as knowing how to make your own medicines. They are wonderfully effective and have uniquely special qualities provided by your own love and energy. Crafting your own herbal preparations will save you lots of money and you will feel healthier and happier than ever before, even before you use them. In this class, we will work with fresh (and some dried) herbs, making several types of tinctures (with and without alcohol), liniments, oils, infusions, vinegars, syrups, salves, decoctions, poultices, compresses, fomentations...and more!
Robin Rose will share some of her favorite recipes and most effective remedies. Herbs are magical, but preparing and using them doesn't have to be mystifying. Come enjoy a fun, enriching experience and then do try this at home!
