Herbal Remedies 101

Have you ever been camping, hiking, hunting, or just in your yard and thought “I wonder what this plant or tree is?”

Herbal Remedies 101 is a 2 day class full of learning the basics. Becca will introduce you to a handful of common herbs easily found in your area, help you learn proper identification throughout the year, parts of the plant used,help you understand the uses, commonly mistaken look a likes, and how to use these herbs as a first aid alternative. At the end of Day 1, the class will go on a Nature Walk to identify the plants and herbs in your area. On Day 2 she will teach you how to make a “simpler’s tincture”, salve, tea, and syrup.

This class is a prerequisite to Herbal First Aid and Remedies 201.

 

Herbal Remedies 201

Herbal Remedies 201 is a 2 day class where we will take a deeper look at several herbs, their chemical constituents, and how these chemicals change in potency as the seasons change. Becca will teach you how to pair the plant to the ailment presented to figure out which herb might be best in that situation. We will go over and discuss contraindications due to present medication being taken, age, method of administration, or health concerns. She will also go over and teach you how to use a percolation technique for a more potent tincture as well. Day 1 is primarily classroom discussion due to the in depth nature of the medical and scientific topics, along with hands-on learning of how to percolate herbs. Day 2 is learning differential diagnosis and charting, learning which method of administration is best, recommended dosing, proper storing for short term and long term. We will finish day 2 with a Nature Walk.

 

Surviving The Night

Wilderness Survival and First Aid is not something you think you will ever need, until you need it. We get so used to our comforts, such as electricity for power and ready available fuels for heat, or emergency personnel. Now more than ever before it is critical to have a basic knowledge of wilderness survival and first aid for the times we no longer have our comforts or assistance from others. We will teach you the basics of wilderness survival and how to make nature become your ready available first aid tools.
