Using medicinal plants


In this course you will learn the basics on using medicinal plants. We go through the history of medicine, the active substances of medicinal plants, how to pick and dry plants and various ways of preparing them. Half a day is spent out in the field where you'll get to learn how to identify different medicinal plants and how to know when is the right time to pick them. We also make mixtures such as herbal oil and tincture.


The course mixes theory and practise and the target is for you to be able to keep learning on your own after the course – and of course prepare your own herbal remedies.


Course length: 1-2 days


Make your own skin products

Making your own skin cream, soap and shampoo is both fun and good for your skin and the environment. Best of all: You get to choose the exact contents of your products and no longer have to expose yourself to mineral oils, synthetic fragrances and other dubious ingredients. You can also adjust the products to your specific skin and hair type.


In this course you will learn how to make a few basic products that you can use later to develop your own recipes. You will also learn about skin-caring herbs, vegetable oils, essential oils and other ingredients used in natural skin care products. This is a creative and inspiring course that most people appreciate.
