Through this series of herbal medicine making classes, we shall delve into the rich role Western herbal medicine making has played in the evolution of creating health for ourselves, our families and our communities. We will cover the four main solvents used for most herbal preparations; water, alcohol, glycerin and vegetable oil and then apply what we’ve learned with Hands-on herbal medicine making covering the practical skills needed to make teas, tinctures, glycerites, infused oils and more.
