Workshop – Learn to Make an Herbal Healing Salve
September 28 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Learn the basics of salve making with local herbalist, Sasha Geerken. You will learn to make your own all-purpose healing salve (wonderful for cuts, scrapes, bruises & bug bites), and can use this knowledge to create your own salve for specific purposes – such as eczema, sore muscle balm or a balm to help soothe tension and ease headaches.
You will go home with your own 4oz jar of healing salve, as well as 12 ounces of an herbal oil infusion of your choice, with herbs picked from Downing Park Urban Farm.
