Let us come together, and collectively honor your own self-care and the power that you have to heal your body and restore it to a state of balance.
We will start the class by sharing a meal together that highlights how food & herbs can influence the health of your skin.
Jessa will discuss healing traditions and plant medicine to boost the body’s natural resilience from the inside and out, introducing delicious, sensual and easy rituals that show you how to listen to your body and create a personalized change to nourish your mind, body and spirit.
Learn how to better understand what is going on in your body, by listening to your skin and learning how to work with the body’s own systems to restore balance. Participants will be introduced to the basics of plant medicine through essential oils, tinctures, and flower essences and other powerful raw ingredients. Together we will discover the simplicity and the importance of understanding how to change everyday self care rituals, towards empowering healing and vitality for each individual. Each participant will also be able to create their own healing tea blend using organic herbs, making it easy to immediately begin a transformation working from the inside out.
