The Old Stone House Presents: Assembling an Herbal Home Medicine Cabinet
Saturday, June 15, 2013
10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.
Many of us use herbs at home, but what are the key remedies to have on hand that have been proven to be most effective for the more common ailments and minor injuries? During this workshop we will spend time discussing (and sampling) the herbal remedies that should comprise every family’s natural medicine cabinet. We’ll cover herbs for colds and flu, headaches, aches and pains, minor injuries and burns, and more, and will discuss in detail how to determine the best herbs to use and what form to use them in, including teas, tinctures, ointments, creams, and salves.
