Loving ourselves is no doubt a revolutionary act. The question is how do we find the time to incorporate a full dose of loving, self-care into our everyday lives. This skillshare will provide space to share ways in which the herbs and plants around can assist us in meeting our self-care goals in phenomenal ways. Reconnecting with our herbal allies can help us to realign, recreate, reimagine, and with ease, find the time daily to reunite with ourselves. This skillshare is for anyone who wants to give more to themselves and experience the collective act of making herbal medicine with others. Participants will be able to take the formulas they create home.
