Thursday evening was the Introductory meeting for the Introduction to Basic Herbalism class series! It was a smashing success! There were a total of 17 of us! After we introduced ourselves, Nancy of Falster Farms gave us a brief history of Honey and some of it's medicinal uses. Then we stopped for a short break and Nancy provided us with Chicory tea (to which we added honey and half and half), chocolate covered meringue bites and a very delicious honey and (Young Living) citrus essential oil flavored Kefir cheese. After our snack we talked about the amazing medicinal properties of Cayenne Pepper and made a massage oil for cold, achy joints with Cayenne and Coconut oil.
I would like to send a Thank You to Nancy for helping me with this class and being the first speaker of the series and providing us with such yummy treats!
