Our grandmothers knew just what to do when the cold and flu season arrived.
Now, you can learn the forgotten ways of an herbalist, working with natural ingredients to create a set of naturopathic strategies for managing winter’s ailments. Come to The Clearing for a 2-session workshop on Thursdays, January 5 and 12 to gain an understanding of the use of herbal teas, which ones and why they are effective. Explore the various old world methods of bath therapies, vapor therapies, encouraging sweating and sinus care.
Eliza Moriarity, proprietor and formulator at Fish Creek’s Herbologie will show you how to decoct roots and barks and how to process the resultant mix into an herbal syrup used for soothing sore throats and to ease coughing. In her hands-on course entitled, Traditional Winter’s Remedies, you will learn how to make a big pot of “medicine soup” and take home a large glass bottle of herbal syrup. Discover which are the vapor herbs, how to make herb tisanes and take along many recipes for effective home remedies.
This two-session Workshop takes place in the Stovewood Room at The Clearing in Ellison Bay on Thursdays, January 5 and 12, from 1-4 pm. The tuition is $28 and does not include a materials fee of $10 for herbs and glass bottle, payable to The Clearing at registration. Call 920.854.4088 or toll free 877.854.3225 to register.
