Be ready for cold and flu season this year with a medicine cabinet full of medicinal plants and remedies that work both preventatively and for acute infections. This workshop includes a demonstration component giving you hands on experience to be able to replicate at home some straightforward remedies to be able to stock your cabinet into the future. Everyone will leave with a container of cough syrup, recipes and instructions for other herbal preparations and a new approach for staying healthy through cold and flu season.
