Learn to how to use herbs to help support the body, mind, and spirit in times of social and environmental turmoil. Plants can help us when we confront stressful situations inside and outside of ourselves. Oftentimes unresolved trauma or unexpressed emotions can build up and manifest as a physical ailment. Working with herbs can help us to take our mental and physical health into our own hands. 

In this workshop we will focus on trauma, mental health concerns, anxiety, stress and grief. We will discuss emotional resilience, what it means, rituals for self-care and cultivating a strong emotional backbone, and using herbal allies.

In the second part of the class we will learn a hands-on ancient infusion technique called "Oxymel" using the herbs we have discussed in class. "Oxymel" is derived from latin, meaning "acid and honey" -- we will be making our own herbal infused oxymels using fresh and dried herbs, flower essences, apple cider vinegar, and honey. Attendees will go home with their own herbal infusion!
