Herbal Workshop with Louise


This is a practical workshop to teach the basic principles of how to use dried medicinal herbs to create your own apothecary for your home family health.  Most herbal preparations like tinctures and salves are expensive to purchase in specialty stores.  However, they are easy and economical to make at home.  In this workshop, Louise will show you how to make infusions, tinctures, oils, salves, steams and a poultice.   You will make a tincture, an oil infusion and a stea m to take home.  You will be able to choose from the following herbs from our farm:  Calendula, Alfalfa, Comfrey,  St. John’s Wort, Red Clover, Marshmallow Root, Motherwort, Poplar buds, Plantain, Mint and Yellow Dock.  We will make a batch of our favourite Healing Salve and you will take a sample of that home as well.  Workshop fee includes material costs and herbs. We will enjoy taste-testing some herbal tea infusions with some herbal shortbread and energy balls.

This course does not cover the medicinal uses of herbs or discussions around medical diagnosis.

If you are interested in a specific herb, all of our dried herbs are available for purchase at the workshop as well as all of our other handmade items.
