The Witch's Garden is a series of monthly classes offered by herbalist Yeshe Matthews. Tracing folklore, family recipes, and wisdom from those who came before us, this group takes on the responsibility of keeping the simple ways of natural healing alive. Together, we study, share, and craft recipes for tonics, liniments, teas, tinctures, and baths, among other, more esoteric methods. Our monthly gathering is an opportunity to learn new recipes and methods in a hands-on way, while communing with other Earth-lovers, herb gardeners, and self-healers.
July 12, 7pm
This month's topic: Crystal Facial Tonic
During this hands-on class, each participant will make a cooling, soothing skincare spray using all-natural ingredients. These spritzes will help you get through the hot days and cool you off as you sit out on the sun-baked earth watching the night for shooting stars. Each spray will include crystal chips to help you bring the energies of the stones and their properties into your self-care routine.
Cost: $20 (includes gathering plus all materials)
