The 3 Alaska Plant Guardians – Yarrow, Wormwood and Devil’s Club

    Every region has a plant that is so abundant, has such diverse medicine and is so available that it is thought of as a guardian plant of the people. In south-central Alaska, we are blessed to have 3 guardian plants of great power and versatility: Yarrow, Wormwood and Devil’s Club. Yarrow is the guardian plant of the mountains. Wormwood predominates in the interior and Devil’s Club supports the coast
     Students will learn to identify Yarrow, Wormwood and Devil’s Club by sight, smell, and touch, the therapeutic properties shared by these guardian plants, proper harvesting and preparation techniques. Examples of dried herb, tinctures, oils, salves, and infusions will be passed around to students.  Handouts will be provided.
     You will gain an appreciation for the scope of the therapeutic value of each of these plants that makes them worthy of serious use and mastery.
