May 4: GREEN WITCH 101: POTIONS CLASS
The simple act of combining herbs with liquid is a magical process, in which two things come together to create something completely new. If you’ve always been fascinated by the world of medicinal and magical plants, a solid understanding of “potions” - tinctures, infusions, oils, etc. - is necessary to unlock their potential. But jumping in and actually making these substances can be intimidating at first. How do you know which preparation is best? Tea or tincture? Essential oil or infused? And why does every book you read say something different?!
At this hands-on workshop, you’ll get a crash-course in herbal preparations - how they’re made, how they’re used, and how to turn your lovingly-harvested, precious plant material into the best medicine possible. You’ll learn how easy it is to make your own tinctures and teas at home, a process that will not only save you money, but ensures a better product - one infused with your individual care and intention.
You’ll be guided through the process of preparing your own tincture (as well as instructions for how to use it), and we’ll conclude with a short blessing ceremony to unite the concepts of magic and medicine, so you’ll leave with a uniquely powerful herbal potion you can put to use in your own life.
