Healthy with Household Herbs
Next time something feels 'off,' instead of walking to the pharmacy for meds, why not stop by the pots of herbs growing on your own kitchen windowsill?
You are used to throwing them in your pasta, rubbing them onto your meats or chopping them up in sauces, but a lot of the standard herbs you can find in your pantry are actually pretty powerful natural remedies.
Class will cover a host of topics, including the medicinal properties of various herbs and spices. Learn how to grow, prepare and apply these au naturel treatments for maximum impact and effectiveness ... minus the hefty price tag and negative side effects of modern day pharmaceuticals.
Special emphasis will be put on creating natural remedies for children, but rest assured, all recipes and tips provided work just as well on upset stomachs, scrapes and migraines as they do on "tummy aches," "boo boos" and "head ouchies."
Light snacks and great information are guaranteed. Come learn with us!
