Stocking the Herbal Family Pantry
Preparing Your Herbal First Aid Kit+Top Herbs to Have on Hand 


Saturday, October 22nd, 1-4 pm

It's time to clean out your old medicine cabinet! Toss out those outdated antibiotics, mysterious cough syrups, and replace them with safe, effective herbal remedies - all of which can be grown and processed in the comfort of your home! (Look for related medicine-making workshops in the months to come). Find which herbs to use for common household ailments, such as headaches, stomachaches, fevers, insomnia/restlessness, colds, flus and more. Also discover which herbs are a "must" to have on hand for minor medical emergencies.

To get you started with stocking your herbal pantry, each participant will assemble and take home a kit including a 1 oz tincture of individual choice and a trauma compress blend. Other plant-based medicines discussed in class will be available for sale at a discounted price.

~Class cost: $40

~Class size is limited (and space fills up fast!); registration is required.

~To register for classes at the BADSEED in Kansas City, or to inquire about workshop dates in Lawrence, please contact the herbalist, Amy Bousman at herbsfromtheburbs@yahoo.com
