Introduction to Herbs - September 3, 2016

***NEW CLASS***

Looking to start using herbs but have no clue where to start? Maybe you have been using herbs but want to fully grasp basics....

This class is for you.

In my Introduction to Herbs workshop we cover sourcing herbs, teas, tinctures, pastilles, salves, compresses, infused oils, and, of course, herbs!! You will walk away with a tincture start, Prana balm, and St John's Wort infused oil.
