O que você fará

Making Your Own Herbal Remedies ... Herbs are the oldest form of medicine. Did you know that one of the first medicines, Aspirin was created in 1897 from a plant called meadowsweet? Your host Melanie is a passionate Master Herbalist who's worked with natural medicine for 25 years. Clavering is first found in the 11th century as Claefring, meaning ‘the place where the clover grows’, and what better way to both discover this beautiful Medieval village and its local flora, than to go for a walk? So we begin by following one of the lovely nature trails in this historic village and weather dependant, we will spend our time outside walking and stopping often to discuss many of the common wild plants en route. During our walk we will also be foraging some of the plants we find to make a tasty cup of fresh medicinal herbal tea with Melanie's expert guidance. You'd be amazed at the world of medicine and nutrition all around us. We will learn more about the special properties each herb offers us and ways you can prepare them. You will leave having been immersed in Nature and seeing the 'weeds' around you in a new light.. and you'll be empowered to create your own natural, effective medicine to improve your health and wellbeing, as well as that of your family and friends. You also take home a handout with essential info on the plants we find and how to create natural remedies!
Other things to note
If you have difficulty walking distance or other mobility issues, we can adapt the experience to accommodate you, if you discuss this with your host prior to booking.
All the herbs we will use will be safe for anyone.
Limited to small groups (up to 8 people) for maximum benefit and enjoyment.

I'm a qualified Master Herbalist & Wholistic Health Coach and have been working in the Health & Wellbeing field for 25 years. I'm so passionate about herbs and natural medicine that I founded the Herbcraft Academy in 2004 and have been teaching a variety of workshops, experiential days and an accredited professional diploma in Herbcraft since then. I run Nature's Pharmacy (an online herbal mail order pharmacy) as well as the Serenity Healing Clinic from my home in Clavering and see clients from all over the south of England. I am also an international speaker and teacher on Herbal medicine, Iridology and Healing techniques and am in the process of writing my first series of books!

I've lived in Clavering for almost 17 years but grew up in Saffron Walden, just 7 miles down the road from my current home, so definitely a local girl.

Onde você estará

We'll walk locally in the neighbourhood to discover a wealth of medicinal and nutritional weeds around us. We'll likely visit the local meadow, once site of Clavering Castle, (earliest castle in east of England), pass the medieval church and may also pass the Cricketers Inn, where Jamie Oliver learned to cook. We will follow one of the nature walks to forage plants. We will then 'make medicine' in Melanie's garden on the edge of the village

I had a great experience with Melanie last weekend - it was great to learn about some of the plants we see every day and how they can be used, and it inspired me to try out some of the 'recipes' at home. Melanie is a great host - her enthusiasm and knowledge really made the afternoon.

The perfect afternoon. Melanie was a wonderful host and made us feel so welcome the minute we arrived at her warm and inviting home. Melanie is super knowledgeable and a real expert in her field. We had a lovely walk where we learnt about the various plants with medicinal properties and taught us about all of the different health benefits. After this, we went back to Melanie's home where we made a delicious brew from the wonderful plants that we had picked. I would and already have recommended this experience to my friends, family, and colleagues! Thank you again, we loved it

The experience with Melani was really great. Within the limited amount of time that we had, she managed to teach us a lot about medicinal plants that grow in our surroundings. Most importantly, she gave us basic tools and knowledge that will enable us to use herbs ourselves! The time with Melani was very pleasant and interesting. She is one of those special persons who you want to get to know better.

We enjoyed the experience enormously. Melanie is a lovely host and a very knowledgeable and passionate herbalist. We were inspired by what we learned and we will try to repeat it at home. We highly recommend this experience.
