Herbal Lung Support for Wildfire Season
Fire and smoke are becoming more of a reality during the hot & dry season in the Northwest. Adapting and finding new ways to care for ourselves and communities is necessary in a changing environment. In this workshop we will be discussing herbal remedies to support lung function with the aspiration to mitigate harm from smoke and its side effects like headaches, flu like symptoms, & heightened stress to name a few.
During this workshop we will formulate a lung support herbal tea for all participants to take home for their personal use. Handouts with information about supportive herbs and recipes will also be included.
