Dayempur Herbals' Annual Herbal Medicine Workshop on Saturday, June 17, was a great success! Over 100 people from all over Illinois as well as the Southern Illinois region arrived at Dayempur Farm on what turned out to be a beautiful day with temperatures in the 80’s and even a little cloud coverage.
Participants enjoyed presentations on herbs and natural health, demonstrations on how to make tinctures and infused oils, and guided tours of the herb garden and Dayempur Farm's organic food production. The flow of the Workshop allowed time to meet natural healthcare practitioners, buy herbal plant starts, products and merchandise, and even win door prizes. A lovely, community-style vegetarian potluck lunch closed our time together.
Anita Brown, Certified Clinical Thermographer and Functional Naturopath, along with Susan Kamil, Licensed Acupuncturist and Clinical Herbalist, presented "Calming the Body & Mind with Herbal Remedies." They also offered lifestyle suggestions that are known to assist with reducing stress and anxiety, and promoting good rest.
The guided tours included the garden beds of organically grown herbs that are used to make Dayempur Herbals’ signature herbal supplements and personal care products.
Thank you to all who came to the Workshop. We hope you feel more informed about herbal medicine and natural health. For those who were unable to attend, please feel free to contact us for more information about workshops and events.
