Beautiful Skin Using Herbs
May 23, 2019
This class cultivates an understanding of the skin from a holistic approach. We explore skin conditions from acne to wounds and talk about our plant allies that soothe and deeply nourish the skin. We learn how to use demulcent herbs for irritated or inflamed tissue. Students also discover astringent herbs and their tissue-healing effects. Learn how to make an oatmeal scrub for face to create a self-indulgent spa experience at home.
Ouch! Bruises, cuts, burns and infections can happen to your skin suddenly and the trauma can linger. In this class, we explore anatomy & physiology of the skin to gain familiarity with patterns of health and trauma. Learn about key herbs and herbal remedies to support conditions like cuts, bruises, scrapes, infections, burns, inflammation, sprains, strains, fractures, breaks and more! Sample and create herbal remedies such as poultices and liniments, as well as learn to how grow or forage for skin-healing herbs for first aid. Make a lavender witch hazel liniment to take home and prepare dandelion and peppermint tinctures as well.
