Healing Herbal Oils & Ointments
Join us and Herbalist Rachel Fae for an afternoon learning the ancient art of phytomedicine. Plants have been used for medicinal purposes long before recorded history. Mix up your own simple tinctures and plant-based elixirs for health and wellness. This is a step further into phytomedicine than the Intro to Plant-Based Medicine workshop to deepen and focus your knowledge. Learn how to infuse medicinal plants in various kinds of oils by stove top and solar method to be applied to the skin. With these oils we can then transform them into a solid ointment called a "salve" using beeswax and other simple ingredients. You'll go home with a collection of your own medicinal creations and remedies for topical application and healing. Salves are a great way to directly heal the skin of various abrasions and sensitivities. Please bring $20 to class in cash or check for the materials fee.
