Meadowsweet Medicine


Fri 12th AUGUST 2022

Meadowsweet is a wonderful native medicinal herb and a firm favourite of herbalists (it is also the herb that Aspirin was originally discovered in). Meadowsweet can be used in natural skincare and in wild food & drinks too.

We will spend this day meeting this wild herb and making medicinal extracts for body and soul. Includes making a pain-ease balm, a digestive tea, demo of drying herbs and a herb walk to see fresh meadowsweet. With Vivienne Campbell, kindly hosted by Julí/Dingle Druid at her beautiful centre & ceremonial garden in Dingle, Co. Kerry.

  Vivienne has taught workshops since 2004.

Here’s what people have said about her classes over the years…..

“Really enjoyed the day. The obvious passion that Vivienne has for her topic. The hands-on was great combined with the wonderful smells were ‘amazing’. Would not hesitate to recommend this course. Leaves me wanting more. Thank you.”

“So interesting … and the spa treatments were a lovely ending. Vivienne is wonderful“

“Great day, very informative, you made it all look so simple. Very social and the room smelt FAB.”

“Just finished that serum we made in your class. It was the best thing I ever used for my skin.

My skin is so good now, I don’t have to use foundation any more.”

“Thank you for a lovely course. I found it really helpful and practical. Looking forward to cooking up some of my own lotions soon.”

“Fantastic 2 days. An interesting and very inspiring teacher. Loved every minute of it!”

“Attended both the natural cosmetic and herbal medicine courses in Gorey in January. Both courses were very informative and enjoyable. The only issue is the courses have left me wanting to know more! Thanks Vivienne.”
