Herbal medicine workshops with Christine Herbert 2013

April 27th: Detoxing - there are many ways to help your body detox, and it can be quite confusing trying to work out which one to do. This workshop will look at some of the techniques available and help you to choose the best one for yourself. Your take home notes will include full instructions for the detox that suits you best.

May 11th: herbal First aid. There are many first aid situationswhere herbs can be used safely and effectively. We will learn about the most useful herbs, and where and when to use them. There will be an opportunity to buy a herbal first aid kit at a reduced price.

May 25th: Using herbs externally - making ointments, oils, poultices for everyday ailments. Learn how to grow, harvest and make remedies to use now or put in your medicine cabinet for when you need them. You will make your own personal ointment to take home, using herbs and essential oils.

June 8th: Using herbs internally - making infusions, decoctions, tinctures and glycerates. Make you own personal elixir from the multitude of hebs on offer - if the weather is good we can harvest them for ourselves from the herb garden, otherwise there are plenty to choose from in the herbal pharmacy.

Each workshop will be 2.30 - 5.30, and numbers will be limited to about 12. The cost is £24 per workshop, or £40 if you book any two. Tea and light refreshments, and a set of notes, are included in the price.
