About this Event

As we prepare for settling into winter in the PNW, how can we better care for our bodies and nervous systems during troubling times? PLUS the Holidaze?! Ughh. How do we find time to allow our bodies to settle and heal themselves in a busy, scary world?

Have you been searching for new ways to balance your energy and soothe fatigue or pain, (aka tossing or limiting coffee and ibuprofen?) We’ve gotchu! This 90-minute class will explore the basic principles of utilizing medicinal herbs Internally to care for Self. We will also be addressing and examining things from a multi-cultural perspective, acknowledging the harmfulness of cultural appropriation and racism within the Western herbalist viewpoint often prioritized in white-led spaces

In this lecture-style class, we will go over basic definitions of tinctures, Tea infusions, Decoction, Vinegars, Syrup, Flower and essences. In addition to giving a “101” style overview of internal herbal applications, we will explore and provide samples of a variety of Adaptogenic and Nervine herbs! Come get to know some more common herbs that grow all around Portland, as well as more “obscure” herbs that you may not have heard of before!

By the end of this class, participants will have knowledge of

- Some basics of how to make herbal remedies for internal use

- what herbs to add to your toolkit to survive the winter (mentally & physically)

- Creating a self-care routine and building a healthier relationship with body, mind & spirit

Written hand-outs, and tea and tincture samples will be provided. If you have herbs that you love to work with that you would like to share in class, please bring them! (Dried, fresh, or tinctured is okay)

Single herb & blended tinctures & other products will be available for purchase at the end of class, from Manatee Medicinals and Stephanie Dunx!!
