Syrups and cordials are a lovely, tasty way to minister a daily dose of prevention to all the family. Elderberry Syrup is well known for its immune enhancing qualities. In this workshop you will learn how to make elderberry syrup with tulsi. These two plants are sacred herbs from the West and East. We’ll also talk about a few other sacred plants which make nice immune and cough syrups for the winter.

Winter Wellness Series – 3 workshops

A series of three workshops on herbs and herbal medicine making, focusing on herbs which support the immune system. The workshops can be taken as individual classes or as a complete series (discount for the complete series!)

The aim of the series is to keep you and your family healthy through the winter. You will learn how to make herbal vinegars, tinctures, syrups and cordials using herbs from your kitchen, the garden and the wild (or occasionally bought). In each workshop we will do a deep dive into 5 to 7 herbs and discuss how these herbs can support your immune system and also your digestive, nervous, cardio-vascular systems and more. 

In each class you will take home a herbal tonic that you will make.
