Judy Clements starts her talk on Herbs!  Judy Clements was our hostess and presenter for this event.  After delicious muffins, fruit and coffee, Judy presented a very interesting talk on "The Herbal Home Medicine Chest".  It was well attended with 18 Bitter Ends plus a few friends.  Judy's talk was a hands-on experience as we tasted Apple Cider Vinegar and Licorice Tincture, rubbed Arnica oil on our bruises and Hypericum oil on our wounds.  The burning of a small bit if White Sage is know for its purifying effects.  Which we enjoyed as Judy burned a few leaves of White Sage and we were surrounded by the aroma of its purifying effects.  We learned about the effects of Passionflower and discovered Rescue Remedy.  Indeed we were a captive audience receiving a treasure trove of tips and advice.  Judy and her husband Pharmacist Mike answered our many questions.  All went away wiser, more thoughtful of our health, and with a small bag of sage from Judy.
