Herbs for Deep Sleep

  • Locust Light Farm 67 Pleasant Valley Road Titusville, NJ, 08560 United States (map)
Herbs for Deep Sleep

This is the fifth class in series “Practical Herbalism: Remedies and Techniques for Everyday Wellness.”

For some of us, sleep can be elusive. This can be a frustrating and complex issue. Herbs can be helpful allies on the path to a good night’s sleep. In this class we’ll discuss:

  • Herbal sedatives — the heavy hitters

  • Herbal nervines, which work on the nervous system

  • Herbal antispasmodics, which relax the body

  • The nuances and characters of different “sleep herbs” and how to make the right blend for you.

We will also learn the traditional art of making herbal oxymels — vinegar syrups. Oxymels are extremely delicious and lovely. You will make an oxymel to take home.

Monday, November 5th, 7:00-9:00pm
