Herbal Holiday Gifts Workshop
Saturday December 9, 2017 - 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
Adults & Youth ages 8 & up Welcome!
Holiday gift giving can be filled with a maze of temptations, often times leading us to spend too much and not feel connected with the gift you are giving. Even after purchasing that expensive gift, you still may wonder if they will actually like it or use it. Our Herbal Holiday Gifts Workshop is an opportunity to make rich and diverse herbal gifts for the holidays, or other occasions, feel connected with the gift giving process, and nourish another person by crafting something special for them from the Earth.
It can't be overstated enough that making a gift for someone is an opportunity for you to create something unique and beautiful, something truly useful and practical, and express love from your heart for that special person. You are offering your loved one the opportunity to dip into that vibrant, natural health by gifting them with a handmade herbal gift that will support their well-being. These gifts are so much more special than what you can find in a store. They are novel, enticing, fresh, and low-cost once you have the skills.
There's so much individual creativity that goes into making these herbal gifts. That results in incredibly personalized gifts that are sure to be received with a smile, and perhaps even a tear. You will make a deeper connection with nature and herbs, learn about their medicinal properties, and carry the skill of transforming herbs into precious herbal gifts with you for the rest of your life. We've often found that people are so inspired by making these herbal gifts that deep down they want to keep them for themselves just as much as they want to give them to others. And you can do that, too! This workshop will include making an array of herbal gifts for the holidays, even including herbal gift wrap, too!

Our day will start with an opening circle with an overview of the Herbal Holiday Gifts Workshop. Then we'll spend the bulk of the day crafting herbal holiday gifts with guidance of a mentor. We'll bring our day to a close by sharing reflections on the process and appreciating the abundance we have created!
Jeannine Tidwell has been practicing the art and science of herbal remedies for over 25 years. Through her work at Twin Eagles Wilderness School in Sandpoint, Idaho, she has brought thousands of people into a deeper connection with wild edible and medicinal plants. Her approach is centered on creating enough understanding and connection throughout the learning process that participants will be able to repeat the whole process on their own.
