So often we find ourselves not knowing what to do for our children when they have common illnesses or bumps and bruises.

In this workshop you will learn the most common baby and kid friendly herbs, common childhood issues and the herbs to use for them, and some easy home recipes you can make to get your kids to take them.
*This is one of my personal favorite classes because it really is empowering as a parent to be the one to help your child!
