Topical Herb Preparations
Sunday July 14th
@Acacia Natural Health
Tim McGee, Acupuncturist and East Asia Medical Herbalist, will be giving a hands-on topical herbal medicine class. Together we will make two preparations that are valuable additions to any first aid kit or medicine cabinet.
Attendees will learn
- Basic understanding of herbs used both from a traditional Chinese herbal and a modern scientific perspective
- Traditional uses of these topical formulas including different ways they can be prepared to accentuate specific healing outcomes
- How, where, and when to safely apply these herbal preparations
Both formulas have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. One of them, San Huang San, is used on sprains, or acute trauma, and is known as “herbal ice.” The second formula, Jin Huang San, is very effective for reducing irritated bug bites, eliminating boils, nodules and other swellings.
As an ADDED BONUS, each attendee will receive a small sample of the herbal preparation made in this workshop..
(This is also a great opportunity to ask a licensed herbalist other herbal queries.)
Let us know you are coming and RSVP so we can have the right amount of supplies ready. Don’t wait, this free class will fill up quick.
See you on Sunday!
