Making herbal products is not only simple and affordable, but most importantly it’s fun! This dynamic hands-on course will provide you with the necessary skills to become confident in traditional herbal practices. Our time together will be divided into discussion and herbal creation. 
As we dive into the art of herbalism you will learn extraction methods to make a wide variety of herbal remedies such as decoctions, infusions, tinctures, salves, lotions, herbal oils, ghee, syrups, and throat sprays. During our first class, you will start the hands-on lab with tinctures and herbal oils. This slow extraction process will take place over the course of the 21 days between classes as you monitor your herbal remedies. When you return the following month we will strain our herbal remedies and convert the tinctures and herbal oils into syrups, throat sprays, salves and lotions. 

You will have products to take home, formulation worksheets, and the knowledge necessary to expand on your own. Discussion topics will include formulation, dosages, and healing properties of herbs. This class is geared towards all levels, no prior experience is necessary. The goal is to help you learn how to select good quality herbs and produce high quality herbal products for common health ailments to improve your wellness, and for friends and family as well!
