Join Herbalist Helen McCormack for a fun day learning about the common plants that grow around us and their medicinal value.  See how to use these plants in many forms to create your own Herbal First Aid kit.

Helen McCormack has been practising at her herbal clinic in Marino, Dublin 3 since graduating from the College of Herbal Medicine (U.K.) in 1994.

She treats a wide range of health problems in her clinic. She also has a background in Health and Wellbeing, combining workshops and courses with growing medicinal plants and making many of the remedies she uses in her practice.

Helen will demonstrate various methods for making a range of remedies creating effective medicines from medicinal plants, from healing salves, syrups, tinctures, and more.

This space full of character will provide the perfect atmosphere to meet other people with a shared
interest and swap many tips and nuggets of advice
