We will use chamomile, Echinaceae and calendula. If possible, find them fresh outside or in shops.
Note the composite flowers, the shape of their stems, the shape of their leaves. Note the similarities and differences.
Rub their leaves between your fingers and inhale deeply. Note the aromatic similarities and differences. (Have coffee or coffee beans nearby to inhale inbetween to cleanse your olfactory system)
Taste each one and note their similarities and differences. Can you describe their tastes: note the sensation on the tongue from Echinaceae. It should taste somewhat acrid and have a sparking sensation. (You can use lemon or ginger to cleanse your palate)
Make teas with each flower. List their medicinal actions.
Note: How each makes you feel when you inhale their aromas and their energetics as you taste them.
Activity 3: Practice-Making an Herbal First Aid Kit
You will be making Echinaceae Tincture, Chamomile Tea and Calendula Salve
