This Class is part of our Gift-Making Workshop Series. Students will make 4-6 holiday gifts; all materials are included!
Salves are thickened ointments (with beeswax) that are used to soothe various skin problems, depending on the plant that the salve was made from. They can treat chapped hands, wounds, mild burns, bites, stings, rashes, boils, acne and inflammation. Students will make a batch of a healing herbal oil with nourishing herbs to choose from like comfrey, yarrow, calendula, lavendar, rosemary and plaintain leaf. Then we will blend these herbal oils with beeswax to create a healing salve for gift giving!
