Anti-inflammatory Oxymels for Marginal-Bodied People
September 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm$20
This class is focused on creating an oxymel for turbulent times. a workshop especially for liminal and marginalized bodies & people. We will use herbs, for example: monarda fistulosa, thyme, chamomile, calendula, oregano, etc. to infuse a vinegar and honey mixture (oxymel) with plant material that will be calming and be anti-inflammatory fighting for the days to come. Life on the margins takes a toll on all our bodies; racism, classism, sexism, homophobia among other structures all negatively impact our bodies and body systems as we move through the world. We are going to make an easily replicable and adaptogenic oxymel that we can make/take to ward against the oxidative stresses of the world. So we can be more present on the planet as we may choose.
This class is being held at our farm in Florence – see the sign up page for directions.
