Workshops to begin soon, here at Goats of Gaia Soap Co.
Two very different 3 hr workshops will be available, under the guidance of Bea Gardner, a qualified medical herbalist.
These workshops will take place at the farm shop.
Green Medicine - The Herbal First Aid Kit Workshop
Healing herbs from Mother Earth can safely treat many of the minor accidents and incidents that happen to your family members. Instead of stocking up on expensive proprietary remedies, you can learn how to create your own at the Herbal First Aid Kit Workshop.
Our hands on class will see you create a selection of healing preparations, such as salves, liniments, poultices, teas and gels. You will learn how to manufacture remedies that treat a range of ailments from insect bites and burns to cuts, joint pain and the common cold and best of all you will leave the farm with a bag of these remedies that YOU have made yourself!( Several of the herbal preparations made will be seasonally specific).
Learn about what herbs are good for specific conditions, where they come from and discover the fascinating folklore and history of many of Nature’s healing botanicals as you are guided through the workshop by Bea. Detailed information sheets and instructions mean that you will be able to confidently recreate these remedies yourself again and again.
A fantastic opportunity for anyone interested in herbs for health and their family’s well being.
Here’s what one participant had to say after attending our pilot workshop-
‘The Goats of Gaia Soap Co.’s ‘Green Medicine -Make Your Own Herbal First Aid Kit’ workshop is fantastic. The information and instruction provided was highly informative and easy to follow. I have used all of the products made on the evening and found them to be exceptionally effective, more so than any other product I have purchased in the past.
This workshop is a MUST DO for anyone who cares about their health and wellbeing. As I am a mother it is of great importance that I manage my family’s health in a safe, natural and effective manner and I highly recommend Goats of Gaia Soap Co.’s natural healing and first aid workshop’.
