This ancient extract combination of herbs and spices was used to combat the plague in the 1700’s. Vinegar of the Four Thieves is an oxymel, an herbal menstruum of vinegar and honey, a delicious folk recipe that dates back to antiquity that is unlike “medicine” at all. Join us in the garden at Mad Lavender Farm to discuss the specific combinations of herbs used to help boost the immune system into the colder seasons. We will take a meditative walk through the garden to connect with the plants. We will honor the indigenous ways of harvesting fresh seasonal herbs. We will take a deeper look at the energetic and medicinal properties of several herbs included such as Sage, Lavender and more. Learn the methods for creating this special mixture and leave with your own VFT batch and a comprehensive informational handout. We look forward to coming together on the farm.
Price includes all of the herbs, vinegar, jar and supplies.
