Medicinal Oils, Salves and Liniments - Oh My!

On Thursday, November 2nd Learn How to Make Your Own Medicinal Salve AND Pay it Forward!


This  hands-on workshop is designed for participants to learn the difference  between medicinal oils, salves, and liniment from fresh or dried herbs.  The workshop will cover basic information about a  variety of herbs commonly found in topical applications. We will go  through the process of making a salve from a medicinal oil from a  selection of local grown herbs. We will also briefly cover some other  common herbs that can be used for topical applications. Each  participant will leave with new knowledge and their very own custom made 1 oz salve, which would be valued at approximately @ $10. Each  participant will also have the opportunity to participate in making 1 oz  Calendula salves to be donated to a local women's homeless shelter.  This idea is based on Deb Soule's "Grow a Row" project; more information  on this grassroots effort can be found at https://www.debsoule.com/projects

Pre-registration is required
Cost: $25 per attendee
Space is limited!
