HERB DAY 2015

May 30, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Come join us for a day of FREE classes, FREE food, Door Prizes and Special Sales at aromagregory soap & tea co. and One2Yoga in Donelson. HerbDay is held every year all across the country and is an international celebration of herbs and herbal products with events aimed at educating about the many ways herbs bring joy and well-being into our daily lives. We celebrate herbs’ use in food, beverages, medicine, beauty products, and crafts, along with the art of growing and gardening with herbs. We’ve chosen our yearly Herb Day event to introduce to you the newest member of our family at 223 Donelson Pike, massage therapist, Tammy Dunn. Saturday, May 30th from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. See our schedule of FREE CLASSES below.

11:30 a.m. – TINCTURES AND INFUSIONS
Learn how to make tinctures and herbal infusions at home for better health, energy, and
well-being. Tinctures are concentrated herbal extracts that are made using alcohol and chopped herbs (sometimes vinegars are used). The tincture is especially effective in drawing out the essential compounds of plants, especially those that are fibrous or woody, and from roots and resins. Many herbalists love tinctures for their ability to be absorbed rapidly into the body. Facilitated by Jan
Thrasher, Yoga Therapist & Ayurvedic Consultant.

1:00 p.m. – HERBS FOR MUSCULAR HEALTH
Did you realize that eating specific herbs can improve you muscular health? By including certain herbs that are high in electrolytes into your foods, muscle function is improved – providing calcium, potassium, and magnesium, which makes your massages and your workouts more effective. In this class we’ll focus on Basil, Spearmint, and Dill and ways to incorporate them into your diet. Sample foods will be served. Faciliated by Tammy Dunn, LMT of Elementals Massage

2:30 p.m. – HERB CRAFTING
Learn how to incorporate herbs, flowers, and roots into your home for beauty, relaxation, and scent. In this class you will be shown how to make herbal tub teas that soften and nourish the skin as well as how to make your own loose, self-igniting herbal incense. Facilitated by Roy Hamilton, RCR of aromagregory & Spirit Essentials.

4:00 p.m. – TISANES: THE ART OF HERBAL TEA
Herbal tea, or Tisane, is any beverage made from the infusion or decoction of herbs, spices, roots, or other plants in hot water and naturally contains no caffeine. In this demonstration, we’ll cover some of the health benefits of herbs and how to blend them with more flavorful teas, dried fruits, and spices to create healthy drinks that can be served hot or iced. Tea samples will be served. Facilitated by Gregory White, CCA of aromagregory.
