JR HERBALIST CLASSES

HERBAL OILS AND SALVES – An Introduction
If you are a well-behaved 6 – 12 year-old (or older and very interested), you are invited to my herbal oils and salves class.  I’m going to teach my own children how to make herbal oils with Comfrey, Rosemary and Tarragon, and it would be fun to have your company! Then, we will make a Comfrey salve out of the Comfrey oil!

Day/Date/Time: Thursday, October 13, 2016, 6:30 – 7:30 pm
Location: Sterling, Virginia / TBA with RSVP to Donna at 571-313-1650

Herbally infused oils have been used for hundreds of years.  They can be enjoyed for body, bath, and massage, cosmetics and cooking!  AND, they can be used as a base to make a variety of medicinal salves.

ANCIENT TRADE ROUTES AND THE NATURAL REMEDIES OF ARABIA
If you are a well-behaved 8 – 14 year-old (or older and very interested), you are invited to my Ancient Trade Routes class featuring the Natural Remedies of Arabia.  I’m going to teach my own children about some interesting herbs and spices that traveled along ancient trade routes and some unique ways that these herbs and spices were used for health and healing in the Arabian Peninsula and beyond.  It would be fun to have your company!
