Make your own ancient remedies based on Greek knowledge of the medicinal benefits of honey and vinegar.

HerbDay 2012 logoThe Greeks knew the medicinal benefit of their local plants and of the menstruum used to extract the medicinal properties from the plants when making herbal preparations. They relied on honey and vinegar preparations to treat a number of ailments. This is due in part to the strong medicinal properties inherent in both honey and vinegar.  In this interactive workshop, we will discuss the healing properties of honey and vinegar while observing how to make these ancient remedies for home use. You will then have the opportunity to make your own herbally infused honey and/or vinegar to take home with you ($5 for one preparation, $10 for both).

Advance registration and payment is required in advance. Contact Chrissy Atkins in the Botanical Medicine office by emailing catkins@bastyr.edu or calling (425) 602-3287 to register.
