Propolis cough sweet workshop
Sophie Outen, our local medicinal herbalist, is back with another fantastic workshop, which will be of particular interest to bee-keepers!
Learn how to make your own cough sweet from propolis, liquorice and honey. Propolis is a substance produced by honey bees from resins collected from trees and plants. It has a wide range of beneficial and healing properties and has a long history of medicinal use. Sophie has developed a way to make a chewy, wine-gum style cough sweet using all these ingredients. Please note, the recipe includes glycerin so is not suitable for vegetarians.
All materials plus a bag are provided so you can take what you make home with you.
Sophie will talk you through the health benefits of each ingredient as we process them and create the mixture for the sweets.
Only 12 places available. The workshop will take place in our craft shelter, which has a log-burning stove, so it should be nice and cosy whatever the weather.
NB – if you are a bee-keeper (or friends with one!) and are able to bring a small amount of your own propolis with you, then a place is only £30
