Herbal Medicine Making Workshop    Saturday 26th January 2019  10.30am-12.30pm

Due to the great response when I advertised the December chest balm making workshop for Herbalists Without Borders, I am holding another one for those who couldn't get a place first time round.

Learn how to make herb infused oils and ointments, and help make chest balm to send out to clinics in refugee crisis areas.

In this workshop we will use herbal infused oils and essential oils to create a chest balm to relieve coughs and chest infections.  Price includes handouts which describe how to make your own herb infused oils and ointments, and the recipe for the chest balm.

This is a Herbalists Without Borders workshop, to raise money to make herbal medicine to send out to refugees in France.  For more information go to
