Tincture Making for the Wild Free-Roaming Human with Laura Clemmons

Tincture Making for the Wild Free-Roaming Human with Laura Clemmons


One of most important aspects of being an empowered human is the ability to take care of yourself and your family. Acquiring the knowledge and skill to identify and harvest plants and make them into medicine is essential for survival in ancient times and today. In order to make these medicines we need to access our courage, intuition, and a good old-fashioned well-respected herb book. Join herbalist Laura Clemmons to make some wild tinctures together and learn how to craft simple yet powerful formulas. We will discuss dry vs. fresh tinctures, how to tincture in the field, and other methods of extraction using alcohol. Come, and boldly enter into citizenship with the plant world. We will be making a fresh plant tincture together that you will take home.
