Sunday 12th July, 10am-4.30pm

This one-day workshop will cover how our nerves and hormones function, understanding insomnia, anxiety, fatigue and headaches, plant actions, identifying the bean family food & herb know-how kit, plus remedy making: hot valerian chocolate, essential oils bath & pillow, tincture.

Sleeping difficulties, anxiety and fatigue have many causes. Understanding our basic hormonal functions and rhythms show us how to improve their resilience. We will identify herbs in the garden that affect our hormones and nervous system and explore how specific foods and eating patterns support sleep and mood. Our practical remedy-making will include how to prepare a tincture, an unusual hot drink blending cocoa with an unlikely herb, using essential oils and other mood-supporting ways of using herbs and foods.

This award-winning course is for anyone interested in healing plants and foods, health, gardening or working with communities. It includes discussion, tasting and identifying healing plants, practical remedy making and assessing your own health. It’s about the pleasure of sharing knowledge, growing, eating, drinking and turning that plant into a simple remedy!
