Spring Herbal Workshop

By Inns of Aurora (other events)

Saturday, May 12 2018 10:00 AM 12:00 PM

Join Jesse Ball, herbalist and Licensed Massage Therapist, for a two-hour workshop on spring herbs that help detoxify the body and digest and nourish from the inside out. Recieve information about both the body and plants and delve into the anatomy and physiology of the body systems and organs. Learn how to support the body's systems and organs to optimal functioning with the use of three herbs readily available locally in the wild. Discussion about the herbs will include name and identification of each plant, its constituents and medicinal uses, and how to source and use the plant including preparations and dosages. Time for a Q&A session will allow for specific examples and discussion. Samples of each herb in various forms will be shared throughout the workshop, and participants will leave with handouts for future reference. Preparations will be available for purchase following the class. This class is open to guests of the Inns of Aurora for $20 per person and the general public for $40. Pre-registration by Monday, May 7 by 11:00 pm is required.
