Herbal vehicles such as teas, capsules, and tinctures are what most folks typically rely upon when administering herbs. Join local herbalist Julie Mitchell of EOS Botanicals to explore new ‘old’ ways to address issues such as inflammation, circulation, pain relief, and first aid through herbal and water applications and absorption through the skin. These techniques are rooted in many traditions and are especially helpful for small children and elders who have difficulty taking herbs by mouth. Recipes and demonstrations will be provided for a variety of ablutions, steams, sitz baths, vapor baths, nasal lavage, and hand and foot soaks.  Please bring a large basin, bucket, or bowl, and a willingness to explore.

Advanced registration required. To register, please contact Denise at the Hannaford Career Center at (802) 382-1004. All classes are $30 or free for members of our Food For All program. Classes are capped at 12 participants. Enrollment is first come, first served.
