The Herbal Medicine Chest
Joanna Helms, BA, RH (AHG)
Historically herbal medicine is the foundation of our generational health. We will discover our ancestor’s strong tradition, and some of their favorite herbs to utilize for seasonal ailments. Our overview will allow us to leave with information, and application to create our own family’s herbal wellness apothecary. Let’s bring our past wisdom forward, and continue a modern tradition with the next generation.
