Creating Herbal Medicine - Tinctures

This 3 1/2 hour hands on workshop will give you a basic understanding and experience with how to make your own herbal tinctures beginning with medicine you can find in your own back yard!

We will discuss various common backyard herbal ‘weeds’ and their benefits; plant spirit communication when preparing and using plant medicines; understanding menstrums and ratios; differences in “Folk Method” and “Weight to Volume Method”; resources for finding benefits, ratios, and dosing for common herbs. During this time you will harvest and prepare your own Dandelion Root Tincture and Dandelion Leaf Tincture to take home and use.
