UPCOMING EVENTS
and a recipe!

Hello Friends!

Please join me for these 3 very special
offerings right around the corner!

All my classes for the rest of the year are ONLINE, and available by
recording afterward if you can't attend in real time.
Check out my website for a full listing of events and classes.

A GREEN WITCHES MEDICINE CHEST
October 13 @ 7 PM - 8:15 PM EDT
Get your tickets HERE!

Green Witches like to keep our herbal medicine safe, simple, and effective. We use local herbs whenever possible, in the form of food, teas, tinctures, and poultices, along with infused oils, syrups, baths and more. By mid-October, we are well into the transitional season of autumn, when it's time to nourish ourselves in preparation for the colder weather and shorter days to come.

AHG ONLINE SYMPOSIUM
October 16, 17, & 18

Our interactive event features 24 sessions, 2 keynote speakers, 3 panel discussions, and a Vendor Fair. Attendees may continue to access this event On Demand for a full 90 days from the comfort of their own home.

HERBS FOR THE NERVOUS SYSTEM
November 16 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM EST
Get your tickets HERE!

We will explore several ways in which the mysterious nervous system may hold the ultimate key to our health. We'll explore how to use herbs such as sage, oat straw, lavender, basil, St. John's wort, nettles, mullein, and Solomon's seal to help address pain, nerve damage, inflammation, anxiety, MS, depression, neuropathy, headaches, and much more.

THREE-TREE TEA

1 cup dried sassafras leaves
1 cup dried spicebush leaves
3 cinnamon sticks

Break up the leaves and cinnamon sticks. Put them into a half-gallon jar and cover with boiled water. Cap tightly and wait overnight if possible. It will be delicious within the hour, but more medicinal if left to steep longer.

I call this fragrantly spicy, aromatic blend "Three-Tree Tea"-but don't try to say that three times fast! The spicebush tree (Lindera benzoin) is our Native American version of the herb allspice, and is often found growing near sassafras trees. They like to work together.

I've always felt that sassafras and spicebush are friendly trees, then I learned from Native American/Cherokee herbalist Jody Noé, ND, that spicebush is traditionally used at gatherings and parties to help people feel more friendly toward one another.

Hmm ... perhaps everyone in America ought to drink a cup of spicebush tea right about now!
