Teaching Kids about Herbs
Join us on Otherworldly Wednesday June 1st, 8 pm EST, I, Tchipakkan, will share my tips for teaching kids to use herbs for first aid (and fun).
(It’s also for beginners at any other age.) If you have kids, and they aren’t up until 9, they can watch the recording on youtube later, and you can join the live show to ask any questions you are wondering about. (link at bottom)
I like to teach herbalism to kids. Young is the best time to give them the basics before they are convinced it’s too complicated, dangerous, and useless. It’s none of these things, although anything effective must be treated with respect. Kids especially love discovering that the wild plants growing around them are good for things from stopping bee stings, and poison ivy, dealing with nausea and small cuts, and also that you can eat some of them. It’s also good to teach them which ones will sting or cause a rash. Also they love making herbal remedies. Even fairly young kids can make teas, ointments, and useful herbal poultices. They don’t have to come running to you for every scrape, but love helping their friends too.
