Intro To Herbalism: Tinctures
With Kaitlyn Watson of Soli Deo Gloria Herbs
Sunday June 4th, 2:00-4:00, $35
What is herbalism? Why should we incorporate herbalism in our lifestyle? What is a tincture and why are they useful?
This in person class is an introduction to herbalism course where we learn the benefits and different forms of plant medicine. We will learn to make a tincture and the benefits of using tinctures.
If you have been curious about a holistic lifestyle and incorporating more plants into your daily life, but aren't sure where to start...this is the class for you! Whether you have some background knowledge or none at all, you will benefit immensely from this course.
Have fun taste testing various tinctures to help us "come into our bodies" and discover the "herbal actions" of plants. Handouts will be provided and will include plants used in the tincture, herbal terminology, and a space for note taking.
Leave this fun, hands-on class with a handmade tincture and knowledge to carry with you for the rest of your life!
