An Introduction to Herbal First Aid

This course is open to all those wishing to broaden their knowledge of herbs and their uses in the home. We will explore culinary, cosmetic and, in particular, the medicinal use of herbs. We will take advantage of the autumnal abundance by using fresh herbs growing locally.

Join us for an extremely practical, highly-informative course, with herb tasting, plant identification, and hands-on experience of making simple, yet powerful, herbal remedies for you to take home.

Herbalism is the use of plants and remedies derived from plants to help the body function more efficiently and in doing so, assist in fighting disease, redressing imbalances and restoring the body's own natural equilibrium.

Course Tutor:

The course will be led by Julia Russell, an experienced local Herbalist. Julia practices Herbal Medicine in Cumbria using traditional European herbal remedies, plus iridology (analysis of the eye) and a Naturopathic approach in dealing with health matters.
