Two Hands-on Workshops for Cough, Cold and Flu Season

 

This year I am offering two classes about how to treat yourself and others including babies and children during cough cold and flu season.  They are fun, practical and information packed classes to help you gain confidence in treating common winter health conditions at home with herbs and traditional home remedies. And each class includes making an herbal product for home use.

Register early as these classes fill up every year.

My upcoming workshop covers traditional approaches to treating some types of acute infectious upper respiratory illness. We will cover all types of coughs, the common cold,  sore throat and strep and  sinus congestion and infection. Participants will taste and experience the recommended herbal remedies and become familiar with a wide variety of preparations including tinctures, teas, syrups, chest rubs, compresses and more.

Students will also participate in a demonstration making Elderberry Syrup. Each participant will take home a bottle of Elderberry Syrup for personal use.

This class is suitable for everyone interested in herbs from beginners to more experienced users/students of herbal medicine.

Traditional Remedies for Fever, Flu and Ear Infections + Aromatherapy Chest Rub

This workshop will cover traditional approaches to fever, influenza and ear infections.  We will discuss the role that fever plays in the development of a robust immune system and learn about, taste and experience many herbal diaphoretics, the wonderful plants the help move a fever through rather than suppress is. We will also discuss other holistic approaches to fever including sweating and hot bathing. We will also discuss influenza remedies and ear infections, covering lots of holistic and natural strategies for surviving ear infections without resorting to antibiotic including oral and topical remedies.

Students will also participate in a demonstration making Aromatherapy Chest Rub. Each participant will take home a container of Aromatherapy Chest Rub  for personal use.
