Be prepared for the cold and flu season this year! Learn how to prepare safe and effective herbal preparations that can help

(1) keep your immune system working well
(2) prevent illness after exposure to seasonal colds and flu
(3) naturally treat discomforts of common colds and flu

This is a hands-on class, where you will be making a classic elderberry syrup, a cough soothing oxymel and a fever relief tea.  We’ll also discuss how to craft immune-boosting herbal broths that can be folded into winter soups, grains, and more. You’ll leave class with a sample of several remedies to stock in your home herbal medicine pantry, as well as the recipes to make them again on your own at home. We will also be reviewing how to make herbal vinegars, glycerites, honey and syrups without refined sugar.  Most of the herbs we will be using can be grown locally in the Sierra Nevada foothills, so it’s a great way to learn how to localize your medicine!

This class will also include additional tips and strategies to prevent and treat colds and flu at home using herbs and other gentle remedies.

This is not an introductory level class – participants should have some basic knowledge of how to make herbal preparations like tinctures and teas.  You don’t need to be proficient, but note that there will not be introductory level explanations of these processes, so if you are unfamiliar, this class may not be the right fit.

This class will be held with appropriate social distancing measures in place and will be limited in size and held outdoors.
