The Alchemist's Kitchen Presents...


Join us for an introduction to using herbs as medicine. Have you ever wondered what exactly is Herbalism, and why it’s important? This class is for anyone who wants a beginners course for how to approach, use, and even harvest herbs ethically and with respect for their tradition.

We will learn the different forms of herbal medicine and how to make them. We will also discuss how herbalists prepare infusions and decoctions, and why this is different and more powerful than a "tea”. We will review the proper dosage, smoke work for clearing using sacred plants, topical salves, and aroma therapies.

Participants will also be making their very own herbal vinegar to take home using raspberry leaf, which naturally high in vitamins and minerals our bodies need including magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium, and vitamins B, A, C, and E.
