Kids stir up potions at ‘Wild about Herbs’

Local children show off their potions and pictures
Local children had fun making herbal potions and pictures during an unusual ‘Wild about Herbs’ workshop recently. Led by medical herbalist Rachel Heathcote the children made a healing potion to take home as well as pictures from dried herb flowers and leaves, and burnt off some energy on a self-guided herb trail.
This was the first children’s workshop that Rachel, who practises in Salisbury and Ringwood has run. A member of The National Institute of Medical Herbalists, she normally sees patients on a one-to-one basis, but having developed her own interest in herbs at an an early age she is keen to spark a similar passion in children for nature, plants and natural health.
Rachel will be running another herb workshop in Wimborne’s Knoll Gardens on 3 September.  ‘Herbal Medicine for Health and Vitality’ is for adults and looks at ways of managing stress, boosting immunity and improving sleep through the use of natural remedies.
