Cool + Hydrate + Moisten

Summer in Southern California can be brutally hot and dry. Many of us are out in the elements more during this time of year, at the beach, hiking or camping in the mountains. Our sinuses and lungs tend to get dried up and congested from the smoggy air; our skin and hair burnt and dry from the sun. So how do we combat these extremes in climate? By eating SEASONAL, FRESH and COOLING foods and herbs.

Come learn about your herbal allies for the summer season as we prepare simple and tasty beverages and snacks in this hands-on workshop.

Topics to be covered include:

* Demulcents and mucilage *
* Summer teas *
* Electrolyte tonics and hydration *
* Moistening from the inside out *
* Herbal remedies for sun exposure *
* Medicated Ghee ~ food for the mind and body *
* Eating right for your Constitution *
