Making and Using a Healing Salve with Jenna Kulp
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Did you know that your skin is the largest organ of absorption and elimination in the body? Our skin, in a sence “eats” what we put on it. So, why not feed our beautiful skin with plants?! Get acquainted with the basics of making a healing salve appropriate for dry skin, cuts, bruises or luxurious self care using botanically infused oils and beeswax. In this space we will enjoy sampling the differences in consistency of salves and balms. Come learn about the medicinal magic of calendula, comfrey, St. Johnswort and yarrow and how they support healthy skin. Together we will make a healing salve and participants will take home a sample and a copy of the recipe and instructions.
