"I am just sending an e-mail to you to say thank you for the 1st series of your E-course. I found it very interesting, full of useful information, easy to follow and profound in knowledge. And you know what? It turned out that I did not have to go further than our own garden to find all of the herbs... I made Hawthorn syrup for the very first time in my life and it is delicious with ice cubes especially on a hot summer day. So thank you again and I am looking forward to the next series."
"You've given us SO MUCH useful info in such a good, clear form. Your course is excellent!"
"I know I've said it already, but I'm in heaven with this course! Best thing I ever did. You're so enthusiastic yourself and so generous with your time and knowledge. It's great that people from around the world can access it too."
HERBS FOR HEALTH
Want to learn about immune-boosting berries, first aid plants to ease bumps & bruises or traditional tonics to increase vitality? Herbal extracts are easy to make when you know how and some are absolutely delicious! Discover cordials, tinctures, syrups, oxymels, herbal vinegar, poultices, infused oils, ointments and much more.
HERBS FOR BEAUTY
Nature provides an abundance of plants that nourish and improve the health of the skin and hair. It’s such a joy to begin to use beautiful flowers such as roses, lavender and calendula to make your own beauty treatments. Learn how to make your own genuinely natural cosmetics in my live cosmetic classes (at various venues around Ireland) or my new online course (launching later in 2016).
EDIBLE WILD PLANTS
Did you know that there are plants growing around you that are highly nutritious edible wild foods? The common daisy (Bellis perennis) contains nearly as much vitamin C as lemons. Nettles (Urtica dioica) are rich in iron, calcium and magnesium in a form that’s easily absorbed by the body. Enrich your diet and enhance your health by starting to include a few safe, edible, wild plants in your diet.
HERBS FOR A HAPPY FAMILY
Looking for and collecting wild herbs can turn a family walk in to an exciting adventure. Preparing the herbs and cooking them in to delicious drinks such as cordials is an activity that adults and children can really enjoy together. And at the end you all get to drink the fruits of your labour! A lovely way to spend quality time together, encourage the kids to engage with nature and make happy memories.
