Sat, 11/8 10:00am

Instructor: Julie James, Certified Herbalist, Master Gardener

Thyme is an extraordinarily valuable herb for treatment of respiratory problems, infection, oral health, and chronic spasm.

Oregano is a powerful antimicrobial, antifungal and antiviral, but also has benefits for digestion, respiration and many other body systems. Together, the two plants, closely related not only in family but also in flavor and action, make some of the strongest medicine we have. They also make tasty foods even tastier.

This class will discuss use of these herbs and the essential oils in treatment of a wide range of conditions. The instructor finds herself reaching for thyme tincture, tea, and essential oil very often, especially during cold and flu season. The plants grow quickly and easily here in Southern California, and they are herbs no garden should be without. Class participants will receive samples of organic Thyme or Oregano tincture and the dried organically grown herb, plus a comprehensive monograph discussing the herb, including botany, cultivation, historical usage, active constituents, current medical usage, culinary usage, recipes and formulas, and health conditions treated by the herb. We will snack on and try out samples of some foods and medicines made with Oregano and Thyme. Yum.
