Learn to create herbal first aid kit

On Thursday at 10 a.m., author and master herbalist Andrea Candee will discuss how to help families develop their own herbal first aid kit at the Cos Cob Library, 5 Sinawoy Road. She will cover the healing powers of every day foods and herbs such as ginger, onion, turmeric, peppermint, honey, thyme and lemon, and teach how foods and herbs can help prevent or treat sinus infections, coughs, colds, headaches and more. Candee also specializes in chronic Lyme disease and its viral co-infections, and is the author of “Gentle Healing for Baby and Child.” The program is free; no registration is necessary.
