So many plant species around us have medicinal value. In this workshop, Liana Jansen of Fijn Botanicals will teach you to identify some indigenous Fynbos medicinal plants. We will then learn how to harness their medicinal properties, covering a variety of extraction methods, including a steam distillation demonstration by Petrus Jansen. The resultant extractions will be used in a selection of formulations, ranging from healing sprays to balms, creams and finally perfume.
This intimate workshop is hosted at Deia House in Onrus, a very exclusive venue only open to select events. The five bedrooms are tastefully appointed and the living areas are comfortable and elegant. The workshop will be conducted around the large dining room table and the cool patio table in the lush garden. Meals will be freshly prepared by Deia’s owner, Braelea Pope, using local ingredients.
This workshop can only accommodate 12 participants, either sharing a bedroom (3 Twin and 2 King bedrooms available) or booking a private room (single participant).
