Herbal First aid offers effective approaches to acute illnesses in post-disaster situations, offering relief to physical ailments while also supporting mental and body system health.

This is a hands-on experience. We meet online once a week via zoom and we have 2 practice dates. It is important to learn how to identify the plants that will be used and learn to make the medicine yourself. By bridging the gap between herbal medicine and first aid, you not only enhance your own well-being but also ensure the health and safety of your beloved pets.
