+ Introduction
1 lecture 01:15

I am Terri Conroy of Danu's Irish Herb Garden and I live in the west of Ireland, in Connemara.  I love plants, I love Nature and I love teaching about the wonderful benefits of incorporating herbs and plants into our lives.  This course will enable you to take care of yourself and your family using herbs and spices you already have in your kitchen.  The course is a practical, hands on course - I demonstrate every remedy so you can see just how easy it is to take responsibility for your own health.

+ Film: Introduction to the Plants
1 lecture 06:12

In this film I am in my poly-tunnel and I am showing you the herbs and plants that I will be using.  Even the wild plants have popped up here!!!  You are probably already familiar with Sage and Thyme and I will show you Coltsfoot and Whit Horehound as well as St. John's Wort and Nasturtium.

+ Making Sage Tea
1 lecture 02:50

In this video, Lesson 1, I show you how to prepare fresh Sage to make a tea or an infusion for sore throats.  Sore throats are often the first sign of a cold or 'flu and this remedy is perfect for halting colds and 'flu in their tracks.  Sage tea is antiseptic and anti-bacterial and is a first call whenever you get a tickly, itchy throat.

+ Lesson 2 - Thyme Tincture
1 lecture 05:52

Here you learn how to make a fresh Thyme tincture and how to use it when a cold or 'flu strike.  Thyme has antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-spasmodic qualities so it is great at defending the immune system and relieving coughs.

+ Lesson 3 - Fire Cider Vinegar
1 lecture 06:48

This is my take on Rosemary Gladstar's recipe.  in this lesson I am infusing a variety of herbs and spices in organic Apple Cider Vinegar with the mother.  After one month this will be strained.  It can be taken on the spoon, put into salad dressings, into stews and soups and casseroles. Be as creative as you like!

+ Lesson 4 -Coltsfoot and White Horehound Cough Syrup
1 lecture 07:13

A hard, racking cough is hard to bear and weakens the system.  This cough syrup is easy to make and will soothe mucous membranes, reducing the soreness.  As Coltsfoot is an antispasmodic herb, the cough will be more productive with less effort and what needs to come up will be loosened.

+ Lesson 5 - Sunshine Liniment and Balm
1 lecture 02:58

A liniment is great when rubbing helps those aching muscles and joints, as it gets the circulation moving.  When people are especially sore and when they need to pamper themselves during the long, dark days of winter, the ointment or balm is another option.
