There's the medicine you find in the pharmaceutical isle at Walgreens, and then there's the medicine you find outside in your own backyard. And while we're all well and good with a little aspirin as the occasion arises, there's something very intriguing with letting mother nature heal us the way it intended for a fraction of the cost and a surprising amount of accuracy.
This Dabble class will introduce students to the world of herbal medicine. Learn the concepts and terminology behind the holistic healing movement, as well as strategies for safely collecting, preparing and applying herbs for curing everyday ailments.
