In preparation for Fall and Winter, how can we ward off viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens in natural ways? This class will explore effective ways to strengthen the bodies’ specific and non-specific defenses with herbal adaptogens, anti-viral essential oils, and choosing foods in season. This preventative approach to wellness will help you stay healthy, optimize immune defenses, and gain more energy as an added vitality boost! We will discuss tonic herbs and medicinal mushrooms, explore anti-viral essential oils, and seasonal foods that increase our vitality and immunity. Participants will enjoy a hands-on portion of the class making and sampling immune-enhancing teas and soup, exploring essential oils and making their own aromatherapy blends. (3 hours)
