***Ambrosia - The NOHM Presents: Oral Skills for Ingesting Extracts w/ Jill TrAshley**

Featuring Envision Festival Co-Producer, Village Witches/Punta Mona Founder Sarah Wu & Conscious Consumption Advocate, Village Witches Co-Producer and Nohm Project Founder Jillian TrAshley

From the Facilitator, NOHM Project Founder Jill TrAshley:
"In my skillshare I focus on menstrums as “vehicles.” My goal is to reprogram our conventional perception of medicine consumption, via a pill, with a familiar understanding of the variety of extracts we can easily make at home on a daily basis. I believe that oral skills and reverence for herbal medicine can provide empowerment toward our daily routine. In this session I will explore the differences and processes around basic and traditional extractions; focusing on water, honey, vinegar, oil and alcohol. I will have medicine in process and finished products for folks to see, smell and sample. There will also be a focus on bio-regionally appropriate medicine making, encouraging participants to learn more about where they live and what is available in their yard and in their natural surroundings. 

This is an interactive skillshare where we will develop oral skills such as swooshing, blowing, smacking, nectar pressing and a combination of all for a sensorotic experience. 

Last 15 minutes of class will be open for questions and transactions. where NOHM extractions will be for sold.
