Formulating Herbal Teas with Sarah Preston
February 15 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm$30 – $35
What is a tisane? An infusion? A decoction? You'll learn this and more! We'll talk about the properties of a variety of common herbs. We will talk about some of the herbs which can be easily grown in our gardens in this area, how to harvest and dry them. Finally, using the formulator’s triangle you’ll learn how to blend herbs into teas for your pleasure, nourishment, and health.
We will then blend a tea together, brew a pot of it, and sip! And then you’ll make your own blend to take home from a selection of herbs we will have available.
Class will be held at Radiance, 13 W Grant St, Lancaster, PA. Stop in or call to register. 717-290-1517.
Cost for this class is $30 in advance, $35 on the day of class if there is space available. Cost includes materials and handouts.
Sarah Preston is a community herbalist, and is owner of Herbs from the Labyrinth, LLC, and her retail shop in downtown Lancaster, Radiance. She says, “Being an herbalist is a natural extension of my life-long love of plants, trees and wild places, and my interest in natural healing, which was instilled in me by my mother. I see herbalism as a lifelong learning process. My spirituality deeply informs my work with herbs, just as my work with herbs informs my spirituality. I see the Earth as the living body of the Goddess, and all living beings as parts of her body”.
