Evergreen Smudge Wands for Winter Solstice

Sunday December 2nd 5:30pm

Throughout history, the burning of aromatic herbs and resins has signified both practical and spiritual significance in our daily lives.

Smudging, or the ceremonial burning of revered herbs, is a way to promote new energy, invite healing, set intentions, consecrate sacred space and invite protection. These aromatics also helped to ward off sickness and malignant forces.

The dark winter nights and celebration of the solstice once called 'smudging nights,' called for such practices to welcome the return of life after the long, cold season.

We will discuss ethical gathering from our abundant evergreen trees, the history and the healing benefits of smudging with evergreens, and craft our own solstice smudge bundles.

Participants will leave with their own smudge bundles to gift or keep and directions for crafting at home.

Taught by Clinical Herbalist Ashley Noack

 Mulling spices

Mulling Spices

Sunday December 18th 5:30pm

In traditional times, the merriment of our winter seasons was enjoyed with sensual aromas to excite the spirit, ward off illness, and awaken warmth from within.

These sweet, rich scents came to us from the exotic spices special to wintertime and are commonly found right in our kitchen cupboards.  

Discover the healing benefits of our 'mulling' spices, traditionally simmered in red wines and ciders, and blend your own for your next cheerful, winter gathering.

Participants will leave with recipes and personally crafted blends to share with others for the holiday season.
