class Description


Learn how to make your own herbal first aid kit to have on hand for treks out into the woods or your own backyard.  We will begin with a walk through the garden and an overview of medicinal plants that grow around us how to both identify them, where to find them and how to use them for minor first aid situations. 

Together we will be reviewing topical first aid preparations and learning basic medicine making techniques to preserve herbs; including infused oils, tinctures, salves, and liniments.  You will leave the class with several preparations : all purpose herbal salve, liniment & wound powder to start building your very own fully stocked first aid kit. Some additional preparations will be provided and reviewed to add to the take home kits. 

Basic Aliments the Kit will be used for include:

  • Cuts and scrapes/ minor wounds

  • Sunburns/ Minor Burns

  • Headaches

  • Insect bites/stings

  • Contact rashes

  • Upset stomach/Nausea/Diarrhea

  • Muscle aches/bruises

Detailed notes and a list of comprehensive enhancements for the kit will be provided. All materials are included in the workshop fees.

I recently took the Herbal First Aid class with Harmony and it was fantastic. She is a knowledgeable and enthusiastic instructor and by the time class was over I felt capable of identifying many herbs on my own when I come across them in the wild. The farm itself is lovely and the open classroom was a great setting. I highly recommend going if you have the opportunity.

I attended the herbal first aid kit class with Harmony. It was so well done! Very informative and hands on which made it fun despite the sweltering heat of the day! Harmony is a wealth of knowledge. Thanks so much!
