Event Details

comfrey salveSalves are one of the classic ways to use the healing properties of herbs externally: a good salve can help with wound repair, burns, bruises, aches and pains. We will create our own simple salve using herbal infused oils blended with pure beeswax. We will go over the salve-making technique and also review some essential oils that can be added to create a therapeutic aromatherapy balm. Participants will leave with a salve and instructions on how to create their own at home. 

After participating in the class, students will have in hand:

  • Homemade salve
  • Instructions for making more at home

Appropriate for beginners of all ages.

$40 class fee includes materials.
