Foundations of Plant Medicine: Oil Infusions and Salves
There are many ways to prepare plant medicines so we can use them to heal and support our body systems. One common way that is an easy skill for the beginner to master is to make a salve. Salves begin with an oil infusion, which is then mixed with beeswax and other ingredients to create a healing salve or balm. Salves are a staple in the herbal household and a foundational element of an herbal practice.
In this class, participants will learn about specific plants and herbs that are particularly useful when applied topically, and learn the process, from start to finish, of turning them into oil infusions and simple salves.
Class size is limited to allow for participant questions and interaction.
