EXPERIENCE THE FARM LIFE
Botanical Bath Tea
Thursday November 10 ~ 6:00 pm
Create 3 of your own unique Bath Teas
Learn the how each herb can be beneficial uniquely for you during this experience.
Bathing in herb infused water allows our body to absorb beneficial nutrients through our skin, our largest organ. Botanical bath tea gradually releases the naturally occurring essential oils in the plants, is rich in antioxidants, and rejuvenates and moisturizes while we relax. Choose from specially selected beneficial and organically grown herbs and flowers.
60 minute Experience includes
• Farm grown Certified Organic herbal tea tasting
• Exploration of beneficial herbs
• Hands on botanical blending with magnesium rich Epsom salts
• Take home your own personally designed botanical bath tea (3) with soaking sachets

These colourful wraps last about a year and can be reactivated. At the end of their lifecycle, they can be composted, rather than adding to our planet’s plastic problem!

• Pre-washed and cut fabric, organic beeswax, and materials
• Farm Grown Certified Organic herbal tea and Mingle Hill honey tasting
• Your newly made set of beeswax wraps (large, medium, small)
* Feel free to bring your own pre-washed fabric. A wonderful way to give new life to Grandma’s cotton napkins, pillowcases, or favourite family patterns! We suggest a hot water wash of vinegar and soap with no fabric softener for all fabrics to be used.
Yule Brooms & Garlandry
with Amy Lou Taylor
Sunday November 27 ~ 12:30 - 4:30 pm
Space is Limited
Please join Amy Taylor, owner of TAoTaT's Mystic Tearoom for a fun afternoon of learning about why we love brooms and why we use the greenery we do at this time of year!! Then we will all make a hand whisk and broom and decorate them for the Yuletide season to come!
We all do it to some extent, decorate our homes and businesses with Yule trees, cedar boughs, pine and fir wreaths etc. Have you ever wondered where those traditions came from? How about the metaphysical properties of those greens we use? What other purposes do they all have.
How about your brooms? Did you know that they do more than just clean your floors? A broom, in some traditions, is a tool which is used to cleanse a sacred space of negative energies. You can do the same for your home for the upcoming Holiday season with some of your yuletide greens made into a mystical broom!
We will use greenery, and some other goodies and create our own Yuletide Brooms for our homes over the holidays! The best part is, you can use these all year long!! Hope you can join me for this fun event. I promise you, you won’t look at any of your brooms, or holiday greens the same way ever again!
All supplies are provided, bring a notepad if you would like to take notes. Space is limited so pre-registering for this afternoon will be required.
