Event description

Description

In this full-day workshop, we will explore techniques and preparations from Eclectic herbalism of the 19th century. We will also look at those used to produce traditional Chinese preparations. We've assembled a good collection of pharmacy textbooks, formularies, materia medica, etc. from the era when medicine was herbal medicine. We will introduce texts and demonstrate techniques and apparatus as we make tinctures (alcoholic extracts) using both maceration and percolation methods, water extracts by way of infusion and decoction, honey pills, herbal mead, and salve. We will also demonstrate essential oil and hydrosol distillation.
