Informative, fun and interactive – you will make common remedies including insect repellent, sunscreen, a skin cream for cuts and minor infections and a chest rub for coughs and colds. By making these remedies you will grow your understanding of how herbal remedies work, and how to make your own. Students will also go on a weed walk, to identify common medicinal ‘weeds’ that grown in our streets and gardens.
Please note there is a $20-$30 material cost payable to the trainer on the say.
