How about some self love, care and learning around the festivities of St. Valentine? We will talk about intention setting and the meaning of different crystals and astrological omens as well as infusing your salts with specific herbs and some essential oils as well... heck I may even throw in some chakra talk! Together we will make 3 different 4 oz jars of bath salts that you can take with you for your baths at home or to share with friends and family. I look forward to seeing you at the oh so gorgeous shop that's hosting - Oakmoss Attic in downtown Pittsboro - on that fine Saturday afternoon! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to hold your spot <3
Come see poppysol and other crafters and makers in support of a great organization. There will be food trucks, vendors, activities for kids, a raffle and a live DJ. Poppysol will have a table chock full of teas, body balms, baths, and bitters. Come visit!
For more information check out their site.
Come see where poppysol grows many of their herbs + visit the gorgeous organic certified farm - RambleRill. The theme this year is educational - learn how to increase the amount of locally grown foods into your diet and how they can benefit you. I'll be serving tea and talking about the herbs!
Also Sunday the 23 - 2:00 - 6:00!
In honor of National Tea Month, join me at Collective Wellness to sip some tea blends and talk about tea - as a ritual and a heath benefit. We will also talk about what our taste buds can tell us about what different herbs have to offer and how to make your own blends at home.
Tea is so healthy for you! It contains antioxidants, has less caffeine than coffee, may reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke, may help with weight loss, may help protect your bones, may keep your smile bright, may boost the immune system, may help battle cancer and more!
Traditional herbalism and orthodox Western medicine are often perceived as mutually exclusive approaches to health and wellness---but are they? How can scientific research enhance understanding of herbs and application of plant-based therapies? How can traditional herbal approaches inform orthodox Western medicine as it evolves to a more holistic system of care? Join us at RambleRill Farm as we explore answers to these questions and others through presentations and discussion.
Email Hannah Popish at email@example.com with names and number of participants by Sunday, September 25.

For centuries, people have healed themselves with plants that grew right outside their backdoors, often with little cultivation or effort. Knowing how plants can be used medicinally is incredibly empowering for us as individuals, for our families, and for our communities.
In this two hour class, we will dig in to better understand 4-5 commonly used medicinal plants that thrive in our area. Information will be provided about their medicinal properties and suggestions will be given for how to grow them. Participants can expect to sample herbal teas, as taste is a huge part of understanding plants medicinally. All will also go home with a baby medicinal plant of their own.
