Herbal Tincture Making for the Immune System
Sunday | November 18, 2018 | 2:00 pm — 4:30 pm
Sticky Art Lab | 1682 University Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94703
Tinctures are potent plant extracts and one of the most portable and accessible forms of herbal medicine. In this workshop you will learn the basics of how to make tinctures at home- from the process of harvesting or sourcing plants- to creating a finished herbal formula for acute or preventative care. The focus will be on medicine making with herbs for building immunity in this cold and flu season. Together you will be creating tinctures using both dried and fresh plants, and you will have the option to bring a tincture home. This hands-on class is a great introduction to herbal medicine as well as a useful skill share for those who want to build their home apothecary.
