Immunity Elixirs, Oxymels & Cough Syrups

Plants have answers for so many ailments. After this workshop, you should never need to buy over the counter cough remedies again!

Before commercial Chemists were invented, our ancestors knew what to reach for if their immunity was feeling a little low - or if they were too late and had a nasty cough. In this workshop, we will run through and make a few remedies to help you in the transition from Autumn to Winter, when our immunity sometimes has to work a bit harder.
