Making one’s own medicines from the healing gifts of nature is our birthright! Learn this inexpensive, empowering art and ensure the quality of your herbal remedies. In this medicine-making workshop, you will experience processes that are vital to the home apothecary. We build self-sufficiency by learning to brew extracts using a variety of menstruums such as alcohol, vinegar, glycerin, and oil. And we will also cover syrups, salves, and poultices. Each student will bring home a creation and a new passion!
Running time ~ 1.5 hours. Closes with a few moments of Leah & Chloe of Rising Appalachia singing live at the women's conference.
