Herbal Study Group: Lemon Balm!

March's Study Group will focus on Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis). How do you work with Lemon Balm? Many consider it a child's herb, or a pleasant beverage. But it has a strong basis for therapeutic use over a wide range of conditions--while still being quite safe for even the very young. And the flavor and aroma hold their own medicine--it's a delightful taste, and a powerfully healing aromatherapeutic oil, if you can afford it. Personally, I prefer my melissa aromatherapy in the form of sticking my nose in the plant.

We'll play with Lemon Balm tonight and discuss ways to use. Bring stories, medicines you've made (and would like to share) that use lemon balm, extra seeds to trade or share, and questions! See you then.

I will have a few lemon balm plants for sale that evening. If you would like one, let me know ASAP.

Every Fourth Tuesday of the month, we will be gathering from 7 to 9 p.m. These meetings are by donation, so pay what you can afford! These days, a lot of people can't afford to go to our regular classes, and rather than have folks go without herbal education, I'm donating my time and some fun plant medicines to our growing, wonderful family of herbal enthusiasts.

So if you've been putting off coming to classes because you couldn't afford the $20 class fee, you now have NO excuse! Pay what you can (suggested donation of $5 - $10) and come learn and play with some incredible people every month!

These gatherings are less structured than our usual classes, but will be a great source of herbal education, they'll be VERY fun, and we'll have an additional opportunity to hang out and play together.

I'll leave some time near the end for a Q & A session, so bring Questions, and we'll try to find answers together!

    I'd love a couple plants and my herb order if you can - I made up a tincture for headache lemon balm and feverfew and a pinch of cacao nibs to share if anyone wants some ;0)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
