The Natural Health Chest: Assemble your own herbal medicine chest for health and wellbeing, including herbal approaches to common conditions

Course Overview
Grow your own medicine!
On this one day course you will learn how to assemble a personal medicine chest using the principles of holistic medicine, for maintaining health and wellbeing. We will discuss herbalism, and herbal approaches to common ailments and useful herbal preparations to have on hand for them. We will look at many different herbs in different forms, and make some preparations from them. This will include making a tisane, an ointment, and perhaps a cream, which you will take home with you, together with an increased confidence in, and understanding of, herbs and our relationship with them. The course also covers the role of herbal tonics and growing herbs for self help and pleasure - I'll be sharing my 'top 20 herbs' to grow at home.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 8 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

Includes all materials plus refreshments. Please bring your own packed lunch.
This course is run by qualified herbalist Rowan McOnegal, who has 30 years’ experience of working as a herbalist.
