This class will be a Materia Medica for Women – an in-depth study of the plants that are most useful for women’s health, including herbs both for acute disorders and long-term wellness.
You may have heard that vitex and wild yam are good for “balancing your hormones”, or that mugwort is useful in bringing on a stalled period–and those things may be true. But medicinal plants are much too multifaceted, their personalities too complex and intricate, to be distilled into such single-use statements. This has especially been a problem with women’s herbs, those with a special affinity for the reproductive and endocrine systems.
Come and meet these plants in all their fullness: learn how they work and why, and how to differentiate between them to choose the best match for your unique body.
