Making Your Own Medicine: Oils and Salves

1 Day workshop
Making Your Own Medicine:  Oils and Salves

Taught by J.T., Community-Centered Herbalist

Sunday September 26, 2010.  2-4 p.m..   
                 Village Green Perennial Nursery
Class cost:  $35.  Materials fee $7. 
Pre-register, class space is limited


Come learn how to make your own healing oils and salves with local
Northwest plants.  In class we will make an herbal salve effective for
cuts and scrapes, burns, diaper rash, eczema, and much more.  Experience
the medicine-making process from gathering the herbs to infusing the oil
to storing the finished salve.

If you would like to take home some infused oil for later salve making,
please bring with you a small (no bigger than 1/2 pint) glass jar and
enough olive oil to fill your jar.
