Chronic Fatigue Support: Workshop includes discussion about the effect the hypothalamus, cortisol levels, defects in the mitochondria (which produce the body’s energy), and histamine-producing foods have on chronic fatigue. We’ll cover diet, herbs, stress reduction, and appropriate therapy strategies.

Anxiety Relief: Nervine herbs are common here in the Pacific Northwest, both on land and sea. We’ll explore herbs, nutrition, and practices to soothe, calm, and heal our nervous systems and cope with panic/anxiety disorder.

Herbal Support For Body Systems: Building strong immune, reproductive, respiratory, cardiac and digestive (including the liver!) systems. Covers herbs appropriate for health issues for each system.

Herbal First Aid: We never know when an emergency situation will occur. Be prepared by learning in advance the best ways to use the right plants – whether at home, on the road, or in the wilderness.

Herbal Medicine Making: Medicinal oils, salves/balms, tinctures/elixirs, toner, oxymels, antiseptic spray, pain-relieving liniment, flower remedies, plant-infused honeys, herbal vinegars. How to make remedies, case study stories, appropriate uses and dosages, and crowd-pleasing ways to use them.

Medicinal Herbs in the Garden: Common herbs like sage, rosemary, oregano, peppermint, and thyme not only bring beauty and pollinators to your garden, but are antimicrobial and antifungal to boot! We’ll explore the folklore, medicine, care, and feeding of these herbs plus blue elder, monarda, fennel, echinacea, lovage, and more medicinal plants that can be easily added to your garden to build your herbal apothecary.
