Herbal Course and Workshop - SOUTH Zealand 27. August 2022
Herbal course with Mette Themsen (Bettes Skincare) and Anja Ballegaard (Naturopath and herbal expert), in Mette's enchanting herb garden and natural soil in South Zealand.
DESCRIPTION AND PROCEDURES
We start the day with home baked bread and herbs shot, where we welcome everyone and talk briefly about what the day offers.
Next we start on the herbal route around the garden with both cultivated herbs, wild herbs and flowers. Together, we look for medicinal plants and talk about how they can be used to strengthen your health, both inside and outside. Anja specializes in the health-promoting effect of herbs and Mette in their skincare care. You will therefore gain a deep insight into how to use the herbs in your food, as medicine and as healing skin care. In addition, the two workshops will target the use of herbs in everyday situations and are an obvious option for those who would like to start your own herbal pharmacy or would like to learn how to make your own skin care.
Along the way, we collect the herbs we would each like to use to make herbal medicine and skin care at the two workshops. Next we start with the first part of the workshop, which consists of producing a delicious herbal facial mist, this under the guidance of Mette. There will be a host of other ingredients that you can choose to add to your mist as you get home.
There will be a break as the herbs pull in your facial mist, while we should enjoy a delicious vegetarian lunch, based on all the biodynamic vegetables from the garden, as well as herbs.
The workshop with Anja, consists of developing a herbal elixir, where you can mix an elixir for your specific needs (eg stomach problems, throat irritation, sleep problems, anxiety etc.) based on what you have learned and collected. Along the way at both workshops, we will also discuss some recent research on the effect of herbs.
We finish and enjoy with herbal beer, coffee and tea, as well as cake
It will be possible to buy Anja's books and Mette's product series Bettes (with special discount), afterwards.
