Nourishing the Nervous System: Herbs for Stress and Anxiety

This program requires registration

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We could all use a little stress relief these days. Luckily, the plants are here to help! Join Nora Toomey, Clinical Herbalist of True Bloom, to dive deep into a handful of plants that nourish and support the nervous system.

In this one-hour program, you will learn plant actions and energetics, as well as practical applications and preparations of various plants that prevent and relieve anxiety. Each participant will also receive a relaxing tea blend so you can begin your relationship with these plants and jump-start your home apothecary!

Tea Sampling Provided

A sample of tea will be provided to each registrant. Samples may be picked up at the Library starting Monday, November 16th.
