Detox does not just involve your digestive system. It is a whole body process. Learn about the various organ systems involved in cleansing your body and how different herbs target and support each one. Using these herbs we will blend our own bitter tinctures to support our own detox needs to start the year off right.
Join us to break down our digestive system, common digestive upsets, and herbs that can be used to support healthy digestive function. This is an excellent introduction if you are looking to go more in depth in learning about herbal medicine. We will focus on how each herb can be used and why you may want to choose one over another for your digestive upsets.
All budding herbalists love to make their own topical herbal products at home. The easiest and most fun are salves. Making a salve is a three step process which we will go through over three sessions. First we will learn to make an infused oil. Discuss measuring your ingredients and determining how strong your oil will be. Our second session, two weeks later, we will strain our oils and discuss how we can use the oil itself and how some of the possible herbs can be used differently. Session three will focus on making salves themselves. Be sure to check the ingredients so you can make these salves with us through the program.
