New Moon Herb Sessions


(Spring Dates COMING SOON!)

Join me for a day of Medicine Making at the Homestead.  We’ll gather in the kitchen in the main house, and have time during lunch for a wander in the gardens.

*Register for the morning or afternoon session, or both for a discounted rate.

Herbal Chest Balm

Just like Vick’s Vaporub, but without the petroleum!  This is a perfect salve to have in your medicine cabinet for winter colds and flu, a soothing remedy for those deep coughs and a running nose.  We’ll go over the basics of salve making and the particulars of the specific plant medicine in this recipe.

You’ll leave with your own jar of homemade herbal chest balm that we make together.

(All Materials Included)


Elderberry Syrup

Elderberry syrup is a go-to cold and flu season remedy, essential for the fall herbal medicine cabinet.  We’ll learn the powerful immunity boosting qualities of Sambucus nigra, along with some other supportive ingredients, and make a delicious healing syrup together.

You’ll leave with your own jar of elderberry syrup for the winter season on its way.
