Join me in this webinar to dive into the depths of Sweet Herbal Medicine.

In the first part of the class I'll break the large category of the Sweet Taste into smaller classifications to bring further understanding.

We'll look at classical thoughts on the sweet taste from around then world and then discuss sweet nutritive demulcents, sweet digestive tonics and then look at the difference between empty sweet and full sweet. 

Throughout the lecture I'll be sharing formulas and ways to fit this into your life so that we can move beyond the simply philosophical arena.

The second half of the class we will look at some of my favorite recipes for Sweet Medicine. These will have practical applications for common illnesses as well as simply for the joy of tasting sweetness in our lives.

Here's a sneak preview.

Sweet Digestive Elixir Recipe
I am posting this recipe using parts so the medicine maker can choose the amount they use. The total herbal material should fill half of the jar they are using. The dried herbal material will expand and filling it more full may result in a big mess.

1 part fennel seeds
1 part orange peel
1/2 part marshmallow root
1/4 part ginger root
1/4 sage leaves
1-3 cardamom pods
Small amount of honey.

Then fill the jar with brandy or vodka. After a few days to a week you might want to top it off again with some more alcohol.

Let sit for 4 - 6 weeks. Strain.

This is a balanced formula that can address a variety of digestive upsets from gas and bloating, cramping and other mild complaints. We'll discuss this and other sweet medicines more in depth during the webinar.

I look forward to seeing you on December 14th, 2011.
