    herb boxes 012We all know that the plants and herbs in our garden are capable of amazing things but how do we tap into those miracles and find out which plants do what?

    We forget that in all but the last hundred years or so, humans and animals have relied almost entirely on plants to treat all manner of illnesses, from minor problems such as coughs and colds to life threatening diseases such as tuberculosis and malaria.

    Herbal medicine often compliments conventional treatments, providing safe, well-tolerated remedies for everyday aches, pains and sores, to chronic illnesses such as asthma, arthritis and irritable bowel syndrome.

    In this fantastic workshop, you will;

    - Learn about 15 different types of herbs and their medicinal uses.

    - Take part in practical demonstrations and learn from the Herb expert herself, Bridget Kitley

    - Learn how to create you own tinctures, fusions and decoctions.

    - Enjoy a delicious and healthy, herby lunch.

    - Receive your own tinctures and treatments to take home.

    - Take away of full notes and instructions from the course.

    The courses are run in the intimate setting of Bridget's home in Stellenbosh and limited to 20 places. There is ample time for Q & A sessions throughout the day and Bridget is always on hand to share her vast knowledge of over 500 herb varieties.
