About the Event: As we skate into the holidays, now is the perfect time to learn how to make herbal gifts for your friends and family. In this workshop. we’ll make a simple syrup of a tasty aromatic herb that can be used to spice up your recipes (which can be repeated with almost any herb for endless herb preservation and culinary joys), as well as a unique herbal chai blend that can be adapted into teas, holiday drinks or a variety of recipes (and learn about the medicinal qualities of these spices). We’ll even make topical herbal items, including an herb infused cream, that is natural and protects and brightens. In fact, if time allows we will make a few different types of topical items. You will also take at least one of these gifts home with you at the end of the session.
