In the heart of winter there are very few fresh plants available, so we are reliant on those we have been able to preserve. However, our kitchen cupboard can be a wonderful source of spices, herbs and other natural products with effective medicinal use.
In this workshop we will learn about the spices, herbs, vegetables, oils, vinegars etc that we keep in our fridges and kitchen cupboards that can be used for different ailments over the winter months.
We will start off by discussing the role and benefits of Western Herbal Medicine, our native herbal plants, and best ways to use them safely.
Then after some herbal tastings we will roll up our sleeves and make our own traditional herbal remedies to take home and put to good use, plus many simple recipes.
Our remedies will include those for colds, coughs, sore throats, digestive issues, sore joints, sprains.
Please bring some clean small jars and bottles to use for your products. All the herbs /ingredients will be provided, plus handouts so you can recreate these recipes at home for benefit of friends and family.
Light refreshments will be available.
