Plants & Oils: Infused oils, Salves & Healing Balms
Oh, this is a fun one—who doesn’t want to play with flowers & anoint themselves with oils? In the 4th class of the Kitchen Apprenticeship Workshop Series*, we learn about the marriage of herbs & oils & how that union may be transformed into beautiful salves to heal & support the skin & body.
Specifically: tonight we discuss how can we use oils to extract plant medicine.
We start with the basics but let’s think outside the box & play a little, okay? We will cover basic cold infusions, warm infusions, alcohol/oil infusions, double infusions, & that’s all before we even get to making the salves. Yes, so many infusions!
Intrigued yet? Join me!
Tonight we will:
-Press 1-2 tinctures from the Tinctures & Elixirs class
-Learn the principles & considerations for infusing herbs in oils
-Do a warm infusion & a double infusion
-Prepare a body oil
