Join us for this monthly community herbal herbal class. Learn about new plants or herbal healing subjects each month and gain a better understanding of how to incorporate their healing remedies into your life.

In the world of herbal healing, plants assist our bodies in so many different ways, from relaxing cups of tea to helping in first aid situations. A beautiful and effective way of incorporating healing plants into your body healing or practice can be through topical applications in massage therapy or body works. Join massage therapist and herbalist, Lori Ann Sommerville, as she shares her experience, tips, and simple recipes for using herbal remedies in the massage therapy field and at home for personal healing. We will go over a handful of herbs for muscle relaxation and recovery, inflammation, nerve pain and more. We will also discuss how to infuse your new plant friends into base oils, appropriate and helpful essential oils to add, and even flower essences to help energetically healing our bodies. We will end the evening with a DIY massage oil bar where you will be able to (with your new knowledge!) blend a 1 oz bottle of personalized massage oil to fit your body's need.
