Herbal Study Group 2013

Study Group 2013

Topics will vary monthly. Some months we will focus on 1 herbs, some months we’ll take a walk and learn about many. The study group will include reading the lesson, doing ‘experiments, discussing further study and advanced work options (that each person will do on their own at home over the course of the month), and ending with group discussion on general topics while enjoying refreshments. Each month we will discuss what was taught/studied the previous month before starting a new lesson.

2nd Wednesday of each month from 7:00 – 9:00 pm

Tonight we got close and personal with Comfrey, one of my favorite herbs for healing cuts, dissolving scars and healing the body after surgery. We talked about the medicinal uses of both Comfrey root and leaf, the proper times to harvest and how to make healing remedies from this amazing plant. Everyone who attended was able to make their own tincture to take home with them and got to try infusions and teas made with both fresh and dried Comfrey leaf.

August 14, 2013 – Prunella

Tonight we headed back to the Prunella patch which grows behind the orchard in the low area that is usually damp and sometimes filled with standing water. Though mosquitos are often abundant, so is the Prunella as that is where she likes to grow!

Prunella is often referred to as Carpenter’s Weed, Heal All, Self Heal or All Heal which gives a great indication of what she is used for.
