Health is an ever-changing balance, and each of us encounters our own challenges, whether it be emotional, physical or spiritual. Herbs can be incorporated into everyday living, to help address and soothe our flare-ups in all of these areas of life. One of the wonderful things about herbalism is that it's easily accessible, as it can often be found in our own backyards and other local dwellings.
Moon Beam has many years of experience in using herbs to find balance in her own life - and has been blessed with a small handful of years working in health food establishments, where she shared her love and knowledge with others. Educating people from all walks of life about the uses of herbal supplements, to help them embark on their journey to wellness.
Currently enrolled with the Wild Rose College of Natural Healing. She is currently completing a course in Practical Herbalism. Moon Beam is so delighted to have the opportunity to share our space and spread her knowledge around holistic health, with other herbal dabblers and enthusiasts!
Whether you are already familiar with the benefits of herbal medicine or are just beginning your journey of natural healing, we hope that you will join us for an afternoon of fun and exploration.
During this workshop we will begin with taking a few minutes to share with each other, what inspires us to want to learn and/or grow herbs. Then proceeding, we will discuss the identification and ethical harvesting of two well-known medicinal herbs that can be found right here within the HRM!
Following this is when the fun really begins, participants will each make their own tinctures to take home! Learn about making simple folk tincture and about the medicinal applications for them.
