What you'll learn in this natural medicine class:

Mother Nature has provided us with an abundance of healing gifts, but accurate information on the usage of these gifts is not quite as abundant. Sift through the vague, sometimes contradictory information about Herbal Medicine Making available on the internet in this course on the basics taught by Rossana Ines Rossi.


In this introductory workshop, attendees will create their own take-home remedies while discovering the traditional and folkloric uses of common kitchen herbs, be offered basic recipes for making remedies at home, and discuss tools for discerning trustworthy information after the end of this workshop.


Attendees will leave with greater confidence in researching and creating plant-based remedies. Participants are greatly encouraged to share their own family’s traditional remedies and wisdom.


Come prepared to get your hands dirty... and take notes! Herbs, jars, and handouts with recipes and resources will be provided. Attendees can expect to take home their own handmade remedies.


Rossana Inés Rossi learned to prepare food as medicine from both parents as a young girl. She has studied with respected herbalists, including a three-year apprenticeship with Robin Rose Bennett—author and founder of the WiseWoman Healing tradition; Lewis Mehl-Madrona Ph.D.—healer/author; and Stephanie Alston-Nero—healer/author. She holds a degree from Oberlin College (Art) and a certificate from Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Rossana has taught widely in the fields of holistic nutrition and healthy cooking and has consulted privately in plant-based medicine and Cherokee bodywork. Rossana practices in the Wise Woman tradition, preparing plant-based products for optimal nutrition and healing.
