BASIC HERBAL REMEDIES MAKING SERIES
Come learn the basic processes involved in making balms, tinctures, soaps, and proper blending of tea and bath herbs. Usually taught as a series, each class provides hands-on opportunities to make products, as well as a wealth of information about when to use which modality, and the herbs being worked with.
Classes may also be offered as stand-alone workshops.
WOMEN’S HERBS FROM MENSTRUATION THROUGH MENOPAUSE
Learn to prevent basic women’s health problems through diet and herbs. This class is usually a series but can also be broken into workshops.
PART ONE—From the first moon time through child bearing. We’ll discuss herbs for balancing hormones and ways to deal with PMS, cramps and heavy bleeding. Discover which herbs are good for increasing fertility, pre- and post-natal care, and women’s basic health through diet and herbs.
PART TWO—Peri-menopausal through menopause. We’ll discuss herbs for heavy flows, and prevention herbs and diet for women-related conditions. We will cover hot flashes, disappearing flows, and many other hormonal-related changes in our aging women’s bodies.
BASIC SOAP MAKING CLASS
Come learn the basic processes involved in making soaps. This class provides a hands-on opportunity, learning to work with lye and oils to create a soap that works for you and your family. We can make an olive oil soap, or a shampoo bar with olive oil as the base, and we will also touch on infused oils. This is a 2–3 hour class. Come away with your own soap (great gifts)!

An Herbal First Aid Class
Herbal First Aid kits can provide peace of mind for you and your family by knowing that your first aid needs can be met with plants around your house and garden.
An ideal First Aid kit should prepare you for a variety of situations – a hike, or a long backpacking trip, camping, or a day at the park, a long drive across the country and, of course, health events at home.
