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.

Richard Mandelbaum RH (AHG) is a clinical herbalist with a private practice in Brooklyn and in Sullivan County, NY.  Richard has been passionate about plants for over twenty five years, with experience wild foraging and growing herbs in an organic, permaculture market garden, and has been practicing as an herbalist since 1997 with a background in both Chinese and Western traditions.  In addition to seeing clients and teaching on a diverse range of subjects, he often leads workshops in field botany, wild edible plants and mushrooms.  He has been a professional member of the American Herbalists Guild (AHG) since 2003, and joined the AHG Council (board of directors) in October 2012.
