Week 4 schedule (Feb 27):

Tender Loving Care with Garden Medicinal Herbs 

This week is all about those wonderful plants that give us every manner of healthy support in our lives.  We will look at some herbs we can grow in our gardens this summer.  We’ll talk about wildcrafting – be prepared for some rules!  Wildcrafting is one skill that requires strict rules.  And we’ll make up some potions that will help boost our immune systems, relax our nervous systems, and ignite our passion for wellness.  We’ll make some elderberry syrup, some turmeric apple cider, some honey-infused garlic and some cough drops.  We will make our Aurora Farm famous Healing Salve.  We’ll enjoy a smudge, a foot soak and a facial steam. 

If you want to participate in these activities, please have on hand:

Any aromatic herb or incense for a smudge 

Any herbal teas you may have on hand for the facial steam (Boreal Forest Blend)

Any essential oils you already have and epsom salts for the footbath

Garlic and unpasteurised honey

Turmeric, apple cider vinegar, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, etc 

Elderberries

Even if you don’t have these ingredients, this workshop will help you get together a list that will allow you to build these healing activities into your lives.  

Be well and look forward to sharing with you.
