Last weekend I treated myself to a blissful morning workshop at The Steel Rooms in Brigg.
'Beat the Winter Blues' was a herbal medicine workshop by Ali English and wafts of delicious scents greeted us as we entered the room.
Ali has such an impressive depth of knowledge of herbalism and is so generous with her wisdom and ingredients.
It was really exciting chopping, pounding, slicing and stirring our potions!
We began by making a rosemary, spice and ginseng 'cheer up' syrup.
It was so delicious that we scraped out the pan afterwards!
We then made a rosemary and calendula 'smile balm' which smelled absolutely gorgeous.
After we finished I felt as though I was floating out of the workshop and I was very happy with my potions!
To finish off the perfect morning, my hubby took me to Shipley's Curiositeas for a real treat.
Just look at that spread!
I felt utterly spoiled.
Winter blues, what winter blues?!?
