CSS The Apothecary, Healing With Wild Plants Course 2023 – CA
June 25 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm CDT$135
APOTHECARY, HEALING WITH WILD PLANTS
“Apothecary” is an ancient term for those who produce healing remedies from raw materials. In times of old, local healers would go to the apothecary to obtain the healing remedies they give to their patients. This course takes you far beyond theory and deep into the world of plant processing. We will turn natural plants, oils, waxes, and more into a wide array of healing remedies. You will make your own natural remedies and take them home at the end of the course.
During this hands on course you will:
- Learn about the active chemicals in each plant/herb we use, their effects on the body, and how to process the plant for maximum effectiveness.
- Make your own healing balm/lotion
- Make a medicinal poultice/plaster
- Make a medicinal liniment
- Brew a medicinal tea
- Make a disinfecting rinse (oral and wounds)
- Learn to harvest and “cure” wild herbs aka “wildcrafting”
- and more!
