Practical Herbalism: Herbal Mouth & Throat Care

  • Locust Light Farm 67 Pleasant Valley Rd Titusville, NJ 08560 (map)
herbal mouth & throat care

This hands-on series gets you in the kitchen and out in the garden: harvesting, identifying, smelling, tasting, and making magic with herbs!

So much of our health begins in our mouth — it’s where a whole lot of food & pathogens enter our body.

The exciting thing is that the mouth & throat is a part of the body that we can easily reach with herbs. There is so much that we can do as home herbalists to care for our mouth (and the rest of our bodies).

We’ll explore:

  • 5 herbs to keep your mouth & throat healthy

  • herbal remedies for sore throats

  • sustainable alternatives to slippery elm

  • antibacterial & antiviral herbs specific to the mouth & throat

  • my easy recipe for homemade tooth paste

  • an herbal perspective on dental hygiene

Your takeaway: Sore Throat Spray
