About the event

This workshop is a wonderful opportunity to learn from native balm maker, Tia Healey-Jellick, who is offering to share her knowledge of the various traditional medicinal properties and health benefits of our native flora.

The workshop includes:

  • A talk by Tia on the traditional medicinal properties of some of our native flora
  • How to use these plants medicinally, using only their natural health promoting ingredients
  • A demonstration on how to make kawakawa balm

Kawakawa is traditionally used to ease sore joint pain, old wounds, bruises, heal minor skin diseases, cuts, boils, abscesses, eczema, septic infections &acne. It regulates oily & dry skin, strengthens it against sun damage, & has anti-fungal properties.

Tia’s background: I grew up in the Kaitaia area surrounded by native bush. The forest was my solace, my friend, my healer and so I have always been passionate about Aotearoa and her native plants.

What started as a passion and a hobby making balms and creams soon turned into a small business called Native Healing Herbals, which as well as making native healing balms, also runs workshops on how to make balms, and use Nature for balance and wellness.

I am passionate about our bodies deep innate ability to heal given the right support, and endeavour to bring that into all of my work.

I follow tikanga, maintaining integrity and respect for the bush and the plants used. As well as having the medicinal properties of the natives and herbs that I use, the balms are also infused with healing energy. I aim to create a product which compliments the body, supporting it to heal without a concoction of chemicals.

This workshop is open to all who would like this unique and valuable opportunity to learn from Tia’s wealth of native bush knowledge and experience.

Tia will have some of her healing products available to buy.
