HEALING WITH HERBS WORKSHOPS

How to Make Medicine

This is a great opportunity to learn about herbs for a specific health condition, formulate an herbal treatment, and then take it home with you to use whenever you need it.

Workshops are especially helpful if you are short on time, new to herbal medicine making, or would like to concentrate on one specific condition, such as skin care, cold and flu, or aches and pains.

Classes are a lot of fun as your learn and share with other like-minded herbalists, surrounded by the beauty of the Santa Barbara Botanical Garden. Other classes are offered at Artemisia Academy or UCSB.
