Solidarity Herbal Medicine Making – Home Made First Aid
25 February 2022, 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
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.
These workshops are designed for adult carers or young carers in Angus. You may be a parent, a son or daughter, a sister or brother or friend to someone who needs your support as a result of their illness, condition or disability. There is no age limit. Please contact email@example.com to book a place or call 01241 656 124 if you have any questions.
Home Made First Aid, 2.00pm – 3.00pm, Friday 25 February 2022
Learn how to use herbs to make an at home first aid kit for you and your family. Using the comfrey and plantain gathered in week one, create a cuts and scrapes salve and a burn gel for small injuries that occur day to day without needing to rush to the chemist. Ease away winter aches by learning how to make a joint and muscle balm. All of these recipes and herbal medicines can be added to the bank of materials for the network of Carers and Young Carers in Angus.
