It’s been a while since I’ve done a plug for Herbal Academy, but once you see what they have to offer this month, you’ll understand why I’m bringing it to your attention.
Herbal Academy has THREE new and exciting summer workshops that will inspire you to keep your plant studies going strong all summer long. These workshops are short, sweet, and most importantly—fun! Each workshop comes with an optional companion product to enhance your herbal exploration.
Imagine for a moment:
- Serving botanical mixed drinks at a summer cookout and soaking up the compliments while your friends and family marvel at how your herbal creations double as the star ingredients in your cocktail (or mocktail!) cabinet.
- Pressing natural herbs and flowers, walk into your beautiful plant press and then using the delicate pressed plants in your materia medica and summer craft projects.
- Sipping on a refreshing herbal iced tea that you formulated yourself—tailored specifically to your tastes and featuring herbs that support your physical, emotional, or spiritual state.
Honestly, these sound like heavenly activities, but you know I’m a little obsessed with herbs anyway.
The Tea Blending 101 Workshop begins June 7. In this 3-part online workshop, you’ll learn everything you need to know to start blending and brewing custom herbal tea blends at home today!
The Flower Pressing for Herbalists Workshop starts on June 21. In this creative online workshop, you will learn how to press flowers, leaves, and other plant parts to preserve their color for years to come.
There are 4 in-depth lessons, a handful of printable charts and graphics, detailed plant-pressing instructions and troubleshooting tips, 4 inspiring videos, and 5 hands-on craft projects, showing you the skills you need to weave botanicals into every aspect of your home—from your apothecary to your kitchen to your art collection.
The Botanical Mixed Drinks Workshop is available on July 5. You will learn everything you need to know to start making flavorful herbal drinks at home, explore the anatomy of a well-made mixed drink, discover easy ways to transform a cocktail into a mocktail and learn how to create a well-stocked bar with basic supplies and herb-infused essentials like Honeysuckle Liqueur, Wild Vermouth, Hibiscus Syrup, and Orange Bitters.
Each course is $45, but you can get all three and save $20 by purchasing the bundle! Act quickly, though. The bundle deal is only available from May 21 until May 31.
Whatever you choose, celebrate summer right with herbs! I know I will be!
