An Herbal Apothecary for Winter Wellness

November 17, 2020 @ 7:00 pm

Location: Zoom Videoconference

Be prepared for what comes your way this winter! As a tie-in to this year’s Lit Lunch @ Night, featuring Alice Hoffman, The Grounded Goodwife, a mother/daughter team of herbalists/naturalists, will demonstrate how to make three natural, DIY remedies to stop a winter bug in its tracks. In this virtual workshop, you will learn how to make a chemical-free sanitizer, a “plague-be-gone” roll-on, and a “Nix the Vicks” herbal vapor rub. Support your health with medicinal plants that have antiviral properties and build your wellness herbal apothecary to prepare for the winter ahead. Participants will receive a materials list to have the option of crafting along with the presentation.

PLEASE REGISTER for the Zoom Webinar.

THE GROUNDED GOODWIFE is a mother-daughter team of “green witches.” Ehris Urban is a graduate of the New England School of Homeopathy, her mother, Velya Jancz-Urban, is a teacher, author, and a former Brazilian dairy farm owner who is passionate about alternative medicine.


The annual Literary Luncheon Benefit is coming to your home @ Night with everything you have come to expect and love about the experience. Don’t miss the 13th Annual Lit Lunch @ Night with Alice Hoffman on Friday the 13th of November 2020.
