Learn to create basic herbal preparations & explore methods of choosing the right plant for the right purpose. This course addresses how to use plants for both physical & emotional healing. We will take time to learn to listen & connect to the plants, to safely understand their power, & practice using our intentions, intuition, & knowledge to make medicinal creations.
This is an informational class for those of you interested in learning the basics of herbal medicine making & the medicines of several plants.
