TOPICAL APPLICATIONS USING HERBS
Fenland Natural Health's May meeting is going to be looking at how we can use herbs topically. We have talked quite a bit about what herbs we can take internally at previous meetings, but not so much as to what we can apply externally, direct to the skin. Vulnerary herbs help to heal wounds and reduce inflammation, so good in the treatment of rashes, bites, sprains, bruises, and skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
Our herb of the month is going to be Stellaria media (Chickweed), a fantastic demulcent that is great for pruritic, dry skin conditions.
Entry is £3 per person and includes a complimentary drink, a handout to take home, and on this occasion some ointment and/or cream samples to look at and try as opposed to our usual tasting samples, although there may be some of these as well! We hope that you can join us.
