Join herbalist Julie Mitchell of Eco Botanicals to learn which herbs address and relieve the aches and pains that result from living the good life. Plants that are easily grown and propagated (in Vermont) for this use will be emphasized along with general information about using medicinal herbs. We will make medicinal plant preparations such as fomentations, liniments, and salves used topically with a discussion of herbal formulas for treating musculoskeletal overuse and abuse.
