Herbal tinctures are an easy way to concentrate and preserve effective remedies from the plant world for a variety of health issues, from anemia to an immune deficiency. Join Carolyn Smith in the classroom for a hands-on class about medicinal tinctures. Learn their benefits and how to make your own at home.
Carolyn has been a student of herbal medicine since 2008. She began developing an awareness of plants and their medicinal value through classes with herbalist, Lise Wolff; she completed Lise’s Three Seasons Herbal Intensive in 2010. Working closely with Lise, Carolyn has learned: the power of subtle small doses of plants for healing; the use of local abundant plants for medicine; the value of carefully listening to people and their pulse to hear what they need; and listening to plants to learn what they do.
Over the summer of 2017 Carolyn worked as the full-time intern at Red Clover Herbal Apothecary in Amery, WI. Carolyn has also worked several years in retail with natural health care products at Whole Foods and Mastel’s Health Foods in St. Paul. She completed a ten-week intensive internship at HerbPharm during the summer of 2013, working on their organic farm in Williams, Oregon, cultivating medicinal plants and studying with a variety of herbalists, naturopaths, and herb farmers while there. Carolyn earned a Masters of Liberal Studies in Spring 2013 through the University of MN, incorporating classes from the Center for Spirituality and Healing into a thesis which focused on changing paradigms of body and healing metaphors through looking at alternative medicine.
