Herbal infused oils and salves are healing and nourishing topical applications. An herbal salve is an infusion of plants in an oil and beeswax base. These salves and oils make fantastic gifts that can be used throughout the year for various skin conditions like cuts, rashes, burns, and sprains or as a massage salve.
In this class, participants will learn how to prepare potentially healing herbal infused oils and then turn those oils into salves. We will also be incorporating essential oils so each person can have a custom blend that they may take home.
Class will focus on:
Ideal plants for the oil infusions
Various oils for herbal infusions
How to make herbal infused oils
Herbal salve making
Essential oils for salves
The workshop will be facilitated by Tina Tedesco, a long-time local herbalist, grows her own medicinal herbs and creates a variety of herbal products.
