The Wonder of Herbs: Growing and Using Herbs in Everyday Life Debbie Boutelier Session I Growing your own herbs and making your own herbal products is very rewarding on a number of levels. Incorporating herbs into your lifestyle is easy, cost effective and environmentally friendly. The participant will learn how to grow a healthy and productive herb garden. You will be introduced to a number of herbs – some very common herbs and some that may be new to you. For most people, their interest in herbs begins with using them in the kitchen adding lots of flavor to recipes. But herbs offer so much more than enhancements to our culinary masterpieces. We will explore the hidden benefits of using herbs in a variety of methods incorporating them into our everyday lives. Some of the herbal pathways that will be discussed are culinary herbs, herbs for tea, medicinal herbs, herbs for beauty products, herbs for cleaning products and herbs for ornamental products. We’ll also give you hints on how to preserve your herbal harvest so that you may enjoy herbs year round. (2 hours) Session 2 - Workshop: The Wonder of Herbs: Making Your Own Personal Care Products Every morning before leaving the house, we are bombarded by as many as one hundred different synthetic chemicals in the course of getting ready for the day. Soaps, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, mouthwash, facial care products, make-up, perfume, deodorant, etc., to name a few, are used to make us presentable to the world. Our skin is our largest organ and these chemicals enter the body through the skin and have to be metabolized and shed through waste. Join us as we learn to produce some of our own personal care products to mitigate the intake of harmful chemicals. These products are easy to make, inexpensive and contribute to an overall healthful lifestyle in addition to being easy on the environment. The participant will also get a product to take home as well as handouts explaining several of the procedures. (2 hours)
