Solidarity Herbal Medicine Making – Care For Yourself

28 January 2022, 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Solidarity Herbal Medicine Making

As a traditional practice of healthcare, herbalism should be something that we all have access to but due to the extremely profitable, and therefore dominant, nature of the pharmaceutical medicine model herbalism has become a private medicine. This means that it is only available to those with the money to pay for it and or the time and knowledge to prepare it.

In three workshop sessions over winter, we join artist and trainee herbalist Ju Scott to learn how to make several herbal preparations in solidarity with Angus Carers Network. Learn how to forage and make healing salves, cook seasonal culinary recipes, prepare relaxing foot bath salts and salves for cuts and scrapes and for burns. As we talk through the ingredients and make herbal remedies, each of you will take what you have made home (one for yourself and another for anyone you care for) and any additional herbal remedies that are prepared will be distributed by Herbal Unity and Angus Carers throughout their community. You will also receive print outs of the recipes and methods to take home.

Workshops take place at Hospitalfield House and Gardens. Please sign up for all three sessions if you can.

Care For Yourself, 2.00pm – 3.00pm Friday 28 January 2022
Treat yourself to some self-care. When you have little time or energy for yourself, come and learn to make your own herbal skincare, a nice way to get some real luxury into your daily routines! Create nourishing herb bath salts using what we foraged in week one, then turn these into easy at home foot baths for a simple way to rest when you are running around doing so much.
