At the Bellevue Botanical Garden and taught by Seattle Tilth. Discover how to use herbs from your garden to make healing skin salves. Salves made from fresh herbs are the perfect foundation for a natural first aid kit. Or take a simple salve recipe and adjust it to create soothing lotions, therapeutic massage bars, lip balms…the possibilities are endless! They make wonderful gifts. In this class we will learn how to identify, harvest and process herbs for salves, discuss beneficial and healing properties of different herbs, see, smell and feel different oils and waxes you can use for infusions, salves and ointments, and make a simple recipe you can replicate at home. Leave with a small sample to try out!
