Summer Herbal Farmacy
A great opportunity to get hands on, meet the plants, make remedies
and learn what to use when, and how!
By the end of the workshop you will have grown your knowledge and confidence, co-created your own herbal first aid kit and be leaving with a wonderful workbook for easy reference.
This workshop includes my top summer herbs and first aid treatments for summer afflictions.
We will explore my working gardens together, focusing on key plants used in the treatment of summer ailments, which parts are used, when they should be harvested and how best to process them.
Over the weekend we will make a number of remedies, including:
- Tincture (alcohol based herbal medicine)
- Infused oils for eternal use
- Drying herbs for:
- Infusions and compresses
Conditions we will cover include:
- Cuts and grazes
- Digestive upsets
- Heat rash and minor skin infections
- Insect bites and stings
- Minor burns
- Strains, sprains and bruises
- Sore throats and summer colds
Knowing when to self-treat, versus when to get professional support is really important and our discussions will include this – leaving you feeling clearer and more confident.
Your Herbal First Aid kit from the day includes:
- Comfrey / Bruise balm
- Calendula tincture
- Chamomile tea
- Insect bite drops
- Cold and Fever Support Tea
- Healing balm
- Echinacea tincture

Your workbook will provide you with a go-to reference and is set out in four handy sections:
- Ailments – external and internal
- Plant Allies covering the main 15 plants we will be focusing on
- Making herbal preparations – including recipes from the workshop
- Useful resources – to support you with your onward journey
