Alcohol-Free Medicine Making
​Learn to leave stigma behind and make potent alcohol-free herbal remedies!

There are great reasons to have alcohol-free herbal remedies in your apothecary, yet many herbalists have only the most basic understanding of how to make them. Whether you are serving a community that avoids alcohol for health or religious reasons, work with pregnant folks, support people in recovery, or want to help with disaster relief, alcohol-free remedies are a critical part of a well-rounded practice.

In this class, we'll discuss the different communities that avoid alcohol, western herbalism's relationship to alcohol-free remedies, and the teacher's own research on alcohol-free extraction methods. You'll learn a novel approach to making alcohol-free remedies at home, and have the opportunity to taste tinctures and alcohol-free extracts side-by-side. 

You will leave this class with a firm grounding in the importance of alcohol-free herbal alternatives, how to talk to clients or communities who are avoiding alcohol, and techniques to make your own extracts without using alcohol. Additionally, each person will have the opportunity to make their own alcohol-free extraction to take home.
