CHS Summer Workshop: Canadian Hydrosols & Oils; Distillation & Therapeutics
August 17 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm$140 – $150
The Distillation & Therapeutics of native Canadian Plants with Suzanne Catty, author of Hydrosols: The Next Aromatheraphy
Our native herbal tradition has many healing plants that we know little about. In this one day intensive workshop we will explore the therapeutics of these amazing botanicals from herbs to trees. You will help harvest goldenrod and take part in a distillation producing both essential oil and hydrosol. The healing benefits of a handful of these native plants will be discussed from pain management to skin care. Attention will be given to the Canadian plants showing anti-cancer properties and theories on the specific chemistry of those extracts.
