Herbal applications have been used to treat everything from insect bites to sore throats or diarrhoea.
Christina will show you how herbs are gathered, dried and stored for use in a range of remedies, from herbal teas to foot or hand baths and soothing pillows. And you'll learn how to preserve fresh herbs in honey or honey syrups, oils or vinegars.
