Kitchen Medicine for Common Ailments

This workshop is Onsite

Workshop Description:
A practical workshop on how to use kitchen herbs, spices, and essential oils to treat common ailments and minor injuries.

Traditional Herbal Medicine is one of the oldest forms of medicine. It uses biologically active organic compounds (phytochemicals), and their energetic and spiritual qualities to maintain and balance our wellbeing. Through this workshop, I’d like to inspire everyone to use easily accessible herbs and spices to treat minor injuries and common ailments. We will learn how to blend the teas to support the immune system, how to address respiratory and digestive issues, how to make quick anti-inflammatory topical applications to ease muscle pain, how to safely use essential oils and much more.

We’ll investigate various types of herbal applications you’d be able to prepare yourself at home, we will taste the teas and we will discuss how to make your own herbal first aid kit.
We will also pop out into the Sanctuary Garden (if the weather allows us) to see what medicinal plants might be growing out there and we will learn the basics of foraging.

Participants will leave with a small package of goodies (anti-inflammatory cream, tea blend, inhaler…) that they’ve helped to create during the workshop.
