Learn how to make raw elixirs packed full of healthy superfoods and medicinal super herbs!
An elixir is defined as a magical or medicinal potion. When you combine densely nutritious raw superfoods with the tonic, adaptogenic and medicinal properties of super herbs in a delicious beverage of spices and flavors, then you have definitely created MAGIC!
Inspired by my studies with Daniel Vitalis (creator of "ElixirCraft") and fueled by information from Courtney Clay (our previously-local wild plant guru), I've been playing with infusions, decoctions, elixirs and herbal tinctures for the past 2 years.
The cooler weather of Fall/Winter is a perfect time to create warming, nutrient-rich, complexly flavored elixirs and I'm excited to help you upgrade the more common coffees, teas and nogs into health-supporting tonics and elixir treats.
Come learn how to work with various kinds of herbs: how to prepare them based on the type of herb, make use of their medicinal properties, and balance their flavors. You'll have the opportunity to explore through taste, demonstration and instruction everything from simple infusions (only one herb used), to balanced combinations, to the art of superfood elixir creation.
Here are the Raw Elixirs we'll be tasting and demonstrating:
Simples & Combos: Nettle, Oatstraw, Chaga, Astragalus, Shatavari, Eleuthero
Fo-Ti / Dulse Soup
Cat's Claw / Pau D'Arco Superfood Elixir
Quick & Easy Wintertime Elixirs
As always, we will provide an extensive handout full of information, recipes and resource links, including detailed information about the herbs and superfoods we are playing with.
