What to do when help is on the way (or not...)

For all the outdoor enthusiasts, hikers, plant walkers and more... 

Imagine you are camping or even just out for a short walk for the day and something happens! It could be big and serious or simply a minor wound like a cut or even a gash - what do you do?!

Plants are all around you that can help in these situations - you just need to know what to use. And hopefully you are prepared enough to have a well-put together first-aid kit.

This session will also cover the best herbal extracts (think essential oils, herbal salves, and tinctures) to add to a 1st Aid kit. Learn about simple, natural remedies that are concentrated, compact, action-packed, and don't freeze.

This workshop does NOT cover conventional bandaging techniques, CPR, etc...

You will be learning about herbs and herbal preparations to deal with First-Aid situations.

Notes and  recording of the session will be provided.

About your instructor:

About the Herb Man: Blaine Andrusek grew up in north central Saskatchewan where he spent a good deal of time in his beloved Boreal forest. By the age of 14, Blaine was regularly hunting and trapping and had a keen interest in native traditions and all that the forest had to offer. At 18, Blaine ran off with a few provisions and adequate gear to survive minus 27 and five feet of snow and ended up spending nearly four months living mostly off the land. Although he didn’t understand the concept of ‘totems’ at that time, Blaine had many experiences with Owl, who told him that his mission, this time, was to never stop learning and to teach. When Blaine returned to Calgary a few years later, he met Terry Willard, who had just started his practice and founded the Wild Rose College of Natural Healing. Blaine was one of the earliest graduates of the Master Herbalist program, and by the Spring of 1981 began teaching. Although mostly a hobby interest at first, ten years later, Blaine gave up other interests in favour of becoming a full-time teacher, public speaker, and practitioner. A focus on essential oils captured his interest, and Blaine was soon formulating and supplying fellow herbalists, aestheticians, and massage therapists from coast to coast, and speaking to eight to ten audiences a week. From children’s summer camps to Elder Hostel, numerous massage schools, television work, and eventually keynoting national and international conferences, Blaine has had an extremely diverse and rewarding career and has been honoured as an herbal Elder. He is the creator of and namesake behind Blaine Andrusek Phytotherapeutics, a line of high-quality essential oils.
