Presented by Susan Belsinger

Nowadays, health and well being are buzz words. There are so many remedies out there to choose from, it is a bit confusing. Susan has been using and making her own herbal products for over 30 years and has favorite, tried and true healing remedies that she uses regularly.

In this class, Susan will share her repertoire of her most-used herbal preparations, which she goes to time and again for preventative and general maintenance, tonic and therapy. You will get recipes for these tried and true herbal remedies: Elderberry Syrup, Habanero Shrub, Wellness Elixir, Arnica Oil and Calendula Salve, and All-Natural Hand Sanitizer. We will make these remedies together, hands-on, and each student will get to take home all six of these remedies.
