Sail through the winter healthy and ready to enjoy the season with part 1 of our winter wellness series. You can stay healthy when everyone around you gets sick – adaptogenic herbs and lifestyle adjustments can make all the difference! The first part of the workshop will focus on building a strong immune system, including the anatomy of a fever, and how to work with our body’s own immune responses to ward off invaders. Then we’ll delve into herbal remedies!
Build your winter wellness herbal apothecary and be prepared for what comes your way!
Making and using fire cider as a time honored herbalist tradition for supporting the immune system and preventing and alleviating cold symptoms has given countless people peace of mind and substantial help. You will make your own custom fire cider as you learn about each ingredient and how it supports immunity!
The role of elderberry as one of the most beloved and effective herbs for addressing most viral infections is well known. Gain an understanding of the unique constituents of our native Elder, Sambucus nigra ssp.cerulea, that make it such a valuable remedy.
Then you will learn all about elderberry medicine while I demonstrate how to properly process elderberries so make an effective elderberry tincture, oxymel, elixir or vinegar!
Note: This is a “Make-Along” class so you will want to have the ingredients ready to follow along in real-time! A list will be provided upon registration.
From the comfort of your own kitchen, join Heather Bruno and other likeminded wildlings and have a blast while learning more than you thought possible!
Participants will receive the workshop recording after the workshop is over.
