Join us in the heated greenhouse at the City Natives plant nursery in Mattapan for a hands-on herbalism class, learning how to make your own aromatherapy heat pad. Herbalist, grower, and educator Charline Xu, with creative partner Shanay Walker, will walk through the sensory benefits of different herbs and essential oils, and how to best incorporate them into your heat pad. All of the materials for making your heat pad will be provided – you only need to microwave at home for therapeutic use! Homemade heat pads, or the class itself make a great holiday gift.
Candles, tea blends, salves and other products from Charline and Shanay’s mobile apothecary, @rootsaboveground will be available for sale onsite. Participants will be invited to explore the grounds of City Natives with a cup of hot herbal tea.
Masks will be required inside the greenhouse and proof of vaccination is required for all attendees over age 12.Register
