Herbal Medicine Workshop @ Evermore Herbs

UntitledUntitledUntitled

This weekend, I had the opportunity to attend an herbal medicine workshop at a nearby modern apothecary.  It was really exciting. We learned a lot about a myriad of herbs and their medicinal properties, and different simple preparations to those properties to work.

The instructor demonstrated how to prepare teas, tisanes and salves to cure/treat a ton of ailments. Upon leaving the shop generously provided with a fantastic gift bag containing herbs we would need to get started. The instructor was just as generous as the shop, and gave us each a samll aloe plant from his personal garden and a small container of rose salve.

I can't wait to put this knowledge to good use, and hopefully come up with some unique recipes to share with all of you!

The herb workshop came straight out of my dreams. Beautiful! I secretly want to own an apothecary where I grow all the herbs fresh out back.
