Natural Botanicals: Wild Medicine Workshop
Explore nature-based green medicines in this intensive botanical class. You’ll discover a bounty of foods and plants to use during the seasons and cycles of plant life to create your very own natural medicine kit, including over 30 botanical and herbal mixes and applications. The course tailors to individual needs as we investigate specific applications of green medicines that resonate with your body type. Learn how the solar and lunar cycles affect optimal wellness and craft herbal blends for cleansing and detox purposes, useful in the sauna or during meditation. Although focused on wild plants, cultivated plants will also be covered.
