A foray into the history and practical applications of herbal aphrodisiacs / Herbs for Raving 

I am a herbalist who offers herbcraft education workshops for all generations. Keen to keep traditional herbal knowledge, practice & lore alive & well in a modern world these fun, practical workshops are informative, stimulating & sensory leaving the participants with new skills and equipped to venture further into the varied world of herbcraft.

The beauty of herbalism is that it encompasses so many different aspects of life - history, folklore, cultural exchange,cookery, philosophy, nutrition, emotional, social, physical care and autonomy. I originally trained and worked in psychology with addiction, particularly with children and young people before training in Western Herbal Medicine. The combination of these two fields helped me to find a more rounded approach to promoting physical health & emotional wealth through herbs and other autonomous practices. I love to work with others and welcome you to choose from existing workshops or approach me to create an appropriate education program for your and your community’s needs.

I work at Neal’s Yard Remedies head office, co-ordinating the tincture unit where we make organic, fresh herbal tinctures from the land.

At Ancient Futures Boomtown i will hold two workshops:

  1. A foray into the history and practical applications of herbal aphrodisiacs
  2. Herbs for Raving
