Making Herbal Remedies - Independent Practical Workshops
These workshops are aimed at those who have attended any previous herbal talks or introductory course with me as they require a little background information and serve to enhance your knowledge and experience of working with the plants.
All raw materials, containers and equipment you will need will be provided. At the end of the workshop you will be able to take home the remedies we make along with the recipes so that you can make them again at home.
Venue is in Crouch End, North London. Please contact me to book & for travel details.
Ointments and Creams Workshop
Tinctures and syrups
These are 3 hour workshops which run from 12pm to 3pm. Booking needs to be made at least 2 weeks in advance.
Independent One Day Herbal Sessions for Groups
I offer one day herbal sessions where the mornings are spent discussing everyday common health conditions and how they can be managed using herbal remedies and the afternoons are spent making herbal remedies. Any of the following talks and workshops can be booked for groups of 5-10 people. I can also come to you. We need a kitchen with a cooker, table and work surfaces and space to comfortably hold the group with seating available.
Cost for each whole day herbal session is £60 per person. This includes comprehensive handouts and all materials, recipes and remedies to take home with you.
Informal talks can also be arranged without the practical session & run from 1.5 hrs to 2 hours. Cost £10 per person.
Topics to choose from include:
Introduction to Herbalism & Herbal Remedies
The workshop includes an informal introductory talk on herbal medicine focusing on some familiar plants including those “weeds” you usually want to get rid of looking at how they can be used to support your health? This is followed by a practical session where you get the chance to make some simple herbal remedies that you can make and use at home. All recipes, ingredients and necessary bottles and jars will be supplied.
Herbal remedies for colds and flu
This talk and workshop will cover remedies found in most kitchens and other useful plants to support and protect ourselves from the common cold and flu viruses. In the practical session we will be making syrups. Again, all recipes, ingredients and necessary sundries will be supplied.
How Well Is Your Digestive System?
Here we will be looking at how our digestives system works. We will discuss common digestive problems, how what we eat impacts on our health and meet some herbs that can offer support and prevent these problems. We will prepare a liver flush and a mixture of herbs to make a comforting pleasant detox tea.
Stressed! Tense Nervous headache? Not Sleeping?
Lets look at some herbs and lifestyle strategies that can help us manage these times. We will try a simple breakfast recipe to provide a good start to the day along with some useful herbs and a nice cup of tea!
