Herbal Salve Making (JGARDSALV)
Come learn how to make your own herbal healing salve! A salve is simply a healing topical treatment for the skin. Salves have been in existence almost as long as humans have harvested plants for medicinal use. They are great first aid for cuts, burns, rashes, and scars as well as excellent moisturizing treatments for chapped lips, dry elbows, cracked heels, gardener’s hands or any body part needing deep hydration.
While making your own you’ll learn about some incredible skin healing plants and bring your creation home with you for year-round use. All materials and ingredients will be provided.
