Herb Classes at Radiance!

So, Tina & I have been working on scheduling a series of herb classes! Here are the classes for October & a sneak preview at November. I'll keep adding more classes as we schedule them, so come back often to check!

Essential Oils and Hydrosols to Know, with a Distillation Demonstration
We’ll talk about several essential oils that are useful for health, well-being, and a happy home. Afterwards there will be a distillation demonstration in a clear glass still, allowing you to see how the oils are made and give you an idea of why they are so costly. We’ll also discuss hydrosols, by-products of distillation that are rapidly becoming the new aromatherapy must-haves. Most people are familiar with rose water and witch hazel hydrosols, but there are many more with great applications. Participants will each take home an ounce of hydrosol. $25 per person
Talk and demonstration by Tina Sams, editor of the Essential Herbal
Weds., October 17th. 2:00 to 3:30 pm

Herb Cordials
Learn to make delicious cordials with herbs, spices, and fruits. We’ll taste test a few combinations, and then each start a cordial to take home. And you’ll have plenty of time to concoct more cordials for holiday gifts! Must be 21 to take this class. $25 includes all materials
Sarah Campbell and Jen Frey will facilitate this class
Tues, October 23 from 6:30 to about 8:30

All Hallows Eve
A discussion of some witching herbs used through time, some talk of traditions and we’ll create hags tapers. We’ll have a meditation on our loved ones who have passed before us. Attendees wear black, please. Join Sarah Campbell, Jen Frey, and Tina Sams for this special evening. $25 per person.
