Further your herbal skills by learning how to make a salve. In this hands-on workshop you will learn how to make an infused oil and turn it into a salve with beeswax. Salves are a topical preparation that may be used for soothing bug bites, sore muscles, chapped skin or lips, or as a moisturizer. The herbs we use will depend on what is available at the time of the class, and you will take home your own 1 oz tin of herbal-infused salve.
