the Inside Out

January 23rd


      Join us on January 23rd, 2018 (snow date January 30th) at 7pm at Strawbery Banke’s Stoodley Tavern (located across the street from the main parking lot) to hear local herbalist Helen Leavitt inspire us to think of herbal care from the inside out. Beauty stems from within. We can nurture our most vibrant selves with an array of herbal preparations to support healthy skin, hair, nails, and teeth. During the evening you will learn easy to make recipes for natural face masks, toners, lotions, deodorants, mouthwashes, and more. Helen will discuss herbal ingredients, how and when to use them, plus lifestyle choices that support our natural beauty in its most stunning form. You’ll leave inspired to make your own preparations. In Helen’s words, “Herbalists don’t cure people; they give them the tools to care for themselves.” 


       Helen Leavitt is a trained herbalist who has worked with plants and people on the Seacoast for over a decade. She facilitates educational experiences that invite others to connect with the rhythms of the natural world and bring balance to their inner and outer environments. She offers gardening workshops, herbal classes, consultations, and product making demonstrations, wellness retreats, and edible and medicinal landscape design services.


       The Herb Society of America NorthEast Seacoast Unit is hosting the event. Admission is $7.00 ($5.00 for Strawbery Banke Museum and non NESU affiliated Herb Society members).  Pre-registration is required.
