This 10 month, one Sunday a month, course offers the herbal enthusiast an opportunity to create formulas and products that will benefit everyone. We spend time in circle discussing the reasons, methods and techniques used to make each product. The focus is creating healing remedies for all issues, disease symptoms and system tonics. As we use the many herbs needed to restore balance we discuss their actions and phytochemicals. This is a fun, hands-on laboratory style program and herbal products are taken home each month to begin your own Herbal Apothecary.
