Herbal Gift Making and Empowering Intuition Workshop

Come enjoy a mid morning tea and herbal gift making workshop with Carla Robertson and Melanie Hardy, as you discover some simple ways to make your own salves, herbal syrups for homemade gift making and get acquainted with your inner healer. 

Gift giving can be stressful not only because it gets expensive but also because there is no need for more "stuff" around the house. In this course you will see that homemade gifts don't have to involve anything but your own powerful intuition paired with nature's gifts.

You will make and you will take home:

- A pocket sized herbal salve: Melanie will provide her favorite recipe for an all around skin salve for insect bites, minor cuts and dry feet.

- A 4 Oz bottle of elderberry syrup-- a plant that grows wild all around the city and often cut down as a weed.

We will also get to enjoy some herbal teas and treats and get to know some herbs a bit more intimately as well as learn to make medicinal strength teas and (re) discover our intuitive healing powers.

Carla will lead us in some intuitive,self discovery exercises that will be dispersed throughout our morning of learning, making and fun!

Light healthy refreshments will be served, and other surprise treats will be included!

Warning: You will be hooked and will become an herb enthusiast after this class!
