Come explore the healing powers of honey and traditional herbal honey extraction techniques with the Director of CSCH, Lisa Ganora and Jake Engle, Certified Clinical Herbalist. Friday evening, we’ll have an opening circle to honor and give thanks to the Bees and to discuss how we can encourage and support them with Bee-friendly herbs and flowers and natural Bee health methods. We’ll also talk about the composition of honey and the medicinal actions of its fascinating array of constituents.
On Saturday morning, we’ll learn how to craft Arabic-style honey pastes and make a Turmeric-Ginger-Black Pepper anti-inflammatory paste; and in the afternoon, we’ll prepare Physio-Medicalist inspired syrups and elixirs. Sunday’s adventure will be making medicinal meads such as Spruce Tip and Ginger.
We’ll also explore the antiseptic and skin-healing properties of honey and how to use them in natural first-aid.
