Introduction to Herbal Medicine: Herbal First Aid   

Herbal medicine is still the most commonly used form of medicine in many parts of the world, though it is no longer the first thing the average American family turns to when it comes to injury or illness. Sadly, much of our herbal knowledge fell out of common practice with the rise of modern medicine, despite its safety, efficacy, and accessibility. Learning how to use common household herbs is a meaningful way to connect to nature and to empower yourself and the people you love through self-sufficiency. Herbs are also tantalizing to the senses! This class is designed to introduce students to the basics of using plants as medicine through the lens of first aid scenarios like burns and wounds, colds and flus, injuries, and digestive troubles. We will focus on common herbs you can find in the grocery store, in your backyard, or in the nearest woods.
