About the event

Medicinal Vinegars & Oxymels

You can book and pay on my site or you can BOOK HERE (this link takes you to the Tablehurst Farm Events page where you can also book and pay for your workshop).

We've eventually come full circle... our ancestors' deep knowledge of natural remedies is being rediscovered and appreciated like never before.

Especially if you cannot take alcoholic tinctures, this workshop will show you how to extract and preserve the many and varied beneficial medicinal qualities of plants. Recipes for delicate yet potent home made medicinal vinegars and oxymels will lend you their power and confidence to support your and your family's health. 

You'll go away with two gorgeous jars of precious herbal gifts you will have manifested during the workshop.

Coming from a long line of Greek medicine women, I have treasured the traditions handed down from my own great grandmother, rediscovered in long-forgotten, dog-eared, time-stained medicine journal pages.
