December 2007

December’s workshop looked at the many different ways of lifting mood during the dark time of the year. The role of digestion, especially bitters, in supporting and nourishing both body and mind was discussed, as was the importance of sunlight or artificial light when dealing with Seasonal Affected Disorder (SAD). David Winston’s treatment of combining lemon balm and St John’s Wort tinctures for SAD was tasted, as were tinctures of skullcap, vervain, lavender and motherwort.

We made a grapefruit bitter to aid digestion and put together a lavender pillow, kindly supplied by Debs Cook. There were also several teas of lemon balm and limeflower to taste.

The interesting thing about the workshop was that everyone who came was having trouble sleeping. After a morning of tasting herbal teas and tinctures, they all went home and slept soundly!
