Handcrafted Herbalism

Making herbal products is not only simple and affordable, but most importantly it’s fun! This dynamic hands on course will provide you with the necessary skills to become confident in traditional herbal practices. The goal of this class is to teach participants to select good quality herbs for the imbalance they would like to correct, and produce high quality herbal products for common health ailments to improve the wellness of friends and family.

The time spent together will be divided into discussion and herbal creation. As we dive into the art of herbalism the hands-on lab will teach students extraction methods to make a wide variety of herbal remedies such as decoctions, infusions, tinctures, salves, lotion, herbal oils, ghee, pastes and juices. Students will have products to take home, formulation worksheets, and the knowledge necessary to expand on their own. Discussion topics will include harvesting herbs, methods for drying, and storing herbs; formulation and dosages; materia-medica and properties of herbs. This class is geared towards all levels, no prior experience is necessary.
