Your Boreal Forest Medicine Cabinet: An introduction to wild herbs that help and heal.

There is a giant pharmacy right outside your door and it's called the Boreal Forest. 

There are many plants that help soothe and heal internally and externally.  You have a cut that is bleeding? Put Yarrow on it. You have a tooth ache? Pack Alder leaves around it. You have a headache? Drink Willow Bark Tea. This is just the tip of the iceberg, the list goes on!

In this class, you will learn about the different plants that are in our great Boreal Forest and the different methods of how to prepare them for medicinal use. There will be examples of products to view. 

Each Participant will get to go home with a few samples for their medicine cabinet to try: a tea, a tincture or liniment, and a salve. 

Please note: This does not replace the advice of a doctor or needed medicines prescribed by your doctor. This class is for educational purposes and to show simple herbal medicines for minor aches, pains and illness.
