About Season’s Gifts Herbal Workshop at Pollok House

Medical herbalist Pamela Spence will teach you how to make your very own herbal-inspired festive gifts for the season. Learn what herbs make the best bath salts, body oils and face creams, recreate 14th Century cinnamon sweets and sample a herbal liqueur to top off your visit. Participants will have 4 full sized gifts to take home at the end of the workshop - we won?t tell if you don?t share them!

During the workshop you will learn how to use medicinal herbs to create beauty products with hidden healing properties. Find out what fruits and herbs make the best creams and relaxing bath salts. Impress your friends with your new found talents and create four original, handmade, Christmas gifts.

You will have the chance to make your own herbal preparations like: cinnamon sweets, rose and lavender face cream, warming herbal bath salts and a detox body oil.
(Please note that the preparations we make on the day may change due to availability of herbs.)

She is the sole herbal advisor to Twinings International, a columnist for Holistic Scotland Magazine, has written and presented her own BBC online series on traditional herbal medicine and often pops up as a herbal expert in publications including OK!
