Learn to make your own salves (similar to a hand lotion or ointment) and lip balm with Mary Blue of Farmacy Herbs. In this hands-on class, Mary will first talk about the medicinal properties of herbs that are healing to the skin, and then we will use locally grown flowers to make (and be able take home) a salve in class. She will also cover the art of making infused medicinal oils. Herbal salves and infused oils are great for the gardeners’ hands of gardeners and can also be used for, among other things, dry skin, cuts, scrapes, eczema, sprains, and bruises. And they make great handmade holiday gifts!
