Making Herbal Remedies: Plant Tinctures
Joshua Muscat, Director of the San Francisco Botanical Medicine Clinic, will teach you how to make dry and fresh plant tinctures, which are concentrated forms of herbal medicine that are convenient to use, highly portable, and have a long shelf life.
Herbs in tincture form
address a wide array of illnesses, from short-term acute issues (such
as urinary tract infection or a head cold) to long-term chronic
disorders (such as sinus allergies, asthma or arthritis). You will
learn useful skills that will empower you to manage your own health
issues with plant medicine, including suggestions for plants that are
appropriate for beginner exploration of self-care. You will get to
take home the tinctures you make in this workshop.
NOTE: This class requires that each participant bring a chopping knife (for cutting herbs). If you are unable to bring a knife, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Date & Time: Tuesday, September 21, 5:30 - 8:30 p.m.
Location: Room A at the Women's Building (please note room change!)
