Herbal Remedies Workshop 2:
Winter Remedies
19th & 20th August 2017
Location - Avebury Village and Megalithic Stone Circle
Summer time is the best time to prepare to get through the winter. The herbs that have traditionally been used to treat earache, sinus infections, colds, influenza, coughs, chest infections, chilblains, sore throats, bronchitis, pleurisy and many more complaints are abundant now and become difficult to obtain from the wild in the winter months when they are needed the most.


At the end of the weekend you will take home a suite of 14 to 16 remedies (tinctures, oils, capsules, electuaries, elixirs, vinegars, oxymels, inhalations, teas) that can be used to bring relief from many of the common winter ailments.


As a course participant you will be taught how to forage and prepare wildcrafted ingredients using recognised preparation methods. You will learn about immune modulators, natural antibiotics and antivirals, decongestants, bronchodilators, expectorants, anti-tussives, diaphoretics, anti-pyretics, heating herbs and refrigerant herbs. 

Learn about how to support the body to recover more quickly, to fight infection and to get the best chance to remain fighting fit through the hardest months of the year. Most importantly you will take home the first-hand knowledge of how to make more for future use.

A light lunch-time meal will be provided on both Saturday and Sunday, and the Red Lion inn is just a short walk away providing competitively priced Saturday evening meals.
