SEASONAL REMEDIES + KNOWLEDGE SHARING
This sliding scale community medicine sharing project is now in it's 6th year! The Herbshare is a monthly herbal remedy subscription that runs in 4 month cycles. Each month participants receive a collection of 3 different herbal remedies crafted from organic herbs grown that season.
Each monthly Herbshare contains a lot of medicine! Most participants find that they're able to both regularly use the remedies and also build up a well stocked home apothecary to have on hand when needed. Most of the remedies included will stay good for 2+ years and do not need refrigeration.
Each monthly Herbshare includes 3 freshly made remedies: A large tincture or elixir with at lest 48 servings and two other remedies that may be any of the following: tea blends, tinctures and elixirs, slow infused honeys and medicinal vinegars, infused massage oils, salves and balms, flower essences, herbal baths and smoking mixtures, to name a few! Throughout the season you can deeply support your wellness and build yourself a home apothecary with safe and effective remedies grown and crafted by an experienced medicine maker.
Each monthly Herbshare is worth well over $160, offered on a reduced sliding scale. Every Herbshare comes with thorough information about all of the herbs and remedies featured that month. This knowledge sharing includes detailed information of how the herbs work in our bodies, how and when to work with the remedies, appropriate dosage information, safety precautions in regards to potential interactions with medications and health conditions, Irish medicine traditions and lore, as well as personal stories of growing the medicines and creating the remedies.
Herbshares are available on a sliding scale.

It has been redesigned to reflect the financial impact that the pandemic has had and is having on many of us. If you have any questions about which rate is appropriate, please get in touch.
