The Hornbeam Café

Skin nourishment with soothing seasonal herbs

Join Charm of Wholistic Medicine, fellow herbalist and good pal of Rasheeqa who is coming in for a special visit from Margate bringing fresh sea air and her skilled balm making hands!

Charm’s a great maker of luscious herbal skin preparations and at this Hornbeam Herbals session you can delve deeper into the art and craft of therapeutic oil-based remedies. A beautiful and sensory application of plants for healing purposes, balms can be soothing, anti-inflammatory, healing, cooling, heating, insect-repelling and much more depending on the herbs infused in them – they can soothe inflammation, counter infection, increase circulation locally and warm muscles and joints.

Learn the method and then you can adapt it to your health needs and situations using local abundant herbs and kitchen spices, accessible natural materials and infinite variation. A balm for each part of the body! Experience different preparations and make a jar together to take home with herbs gathered from our local wild places.

All welcome; beginners and balm-makers alike.
