Measured Medicine: A Scietific Approach to Herbal Tinctures

March 26 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

In this workshop, herbalist and artist Greta Dietrich of Woodswise Apothecary will demystify herbal medicine by taking a scientific approach to formula and practice. Participants will learn the craft of tincturing, history, types of alcohol used, and reasons why we use a tincture instead of a tea, infusion or decoction. Greta will also cover when to use fresh or dried herbs, why it’s important to measure, how and why we must always label, determining dosage, as well as the responsibilities of being a medicine maker.
