For centuries people have been using spices and herbs to flavor, color, and texture their food. Herbs and spices can be mythic in their ability to change a dish from bland to interesting. Within the past few decades, herbs like turmeric have made their way into our popular American culture. turmeric, as we know, is added to many curries, but is also a commonly known anti-inflammatory and very powerful joint paint reducer. What most people may not know is that most common culinary herbs and spices have a range of researched and documented medicinal benefits. Thyme is an everyday kitchen garden herb, but also has extremely potent antiviral properties, and can clear sinuses very quickly or ward off a cold. Cardamon, spicy and aromatic, has the ability to dispel gas and ease colic.

As we enter into an ever-shifting political landscape there is not a better time than now to take charge of areas of our life that we give up to “authority”. The American healthcare system is monolithic, powerful, and too expensive. Many common conditions respond well to herbal use. The kitchen apothecary class is a way to both increase self-care practices and uncover home remedies already at your disposal and on the cheap. A good day to day wellness practice can do wonders on our overall well-being!

Come learn about the time-honored and revered tradition of “kitchen herbalism”. We will be discussing oxymels, honeys, steam inhalations and diving deep into our pantries!

This class will be taught at the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism on April 16, 5:30-7:30 pm. Bring yourself, any herbs you might be curious about, and let’s get cooking!
