Family Wellness: Herbal Medicine Making, Tinctures & Glycerites - February 16, 10am-4pm

Family Wellness: Herbal Medicine Making, Tinctures & Glycerites - February 16, 10am-4pm - The Scarlet Sage Herb Co.
Tinctures and Glycerites are the methods that many western herbalists use to give their clients and children herbal medicine. Tinctures are alcohol extractions that are easy to make and preserve the herbs for many, many years. Glycerites are herbal extracts made with glycerine instead of alcohol, which is great for children or adults who do not wish to ingest alcohol. 
We will be making tinctures, and glycerites in this class using two methods; folk and scientific. Both methods are used by herbalists and are effective, yet each has their own value in the herbal medicine industry and practice. Each participant will go home with two tinctures and one glycerite to finish macerating at home. 

This class is part of the Family Wellness Certification.

About the teacher:

In 2006, Laura graduated from The California School of Herbal Studies in Clinical Herbal Medicine while running a chai tea company, and in 2008, Laura co-founded Avra Organic Spa in San Francisco.

Laura has studied in clinic and privately with many teachers; David Hoffmann, Matthew Wood, Dr. Vasant Lad, to name a few. She has also been a guest lecturer teaching western herbalism at UW Madison.
