You know you just want to make things in the kitchen, don’t you? You can make herbal medicine at home without a lot of exotic ingredients and fancy tools.
In this primarily hands-on class, we’ll explore 6 types of herbal preparations, including the reasons why we utilize each and how to prepare them. You’ll leave this class feeling empowered to create and experiment with making your own plant medicines at home for yourself, your family and beyond. After each class, you’ll go home with instructions, recipes and 1-3 herbal goodies.
This class is taught by local herbalist Lauren Peterson, a Juniper-lover, Sacred Journey School of Herbalism graduate, and owner of White Deer Apothecary. Lauren’s passion for plants grew from her desire to deepen her connection with the natural world and nurture relationships that allow healing to take place. Her favorite places to be are outdoors, in the kitchen, and on the dance floor.
