Medicine Making: Salves & Balms

Oils have medicinal qualities in of themselves. They also make wonderful solvents for extracting and preserving plant medicine. Learn how to work with oil as an ingredient and solvent to create your own topical preparations. These skills can be used to create both medicinal salves and chemical-free beauty products. This class will be taught by Katelyn Jarkoweic. 

Katelyn is a plant lover, folk herbalist, teacher, gardener, and the heart & soul behind Hey Thanks! Herbal Company, a small-batch apothecary located in Baltimore, MD. Using primarily home grown, wildcrafted and locally sourced herbs, their goal is to provide products that reconnect people to the medicines of their region and prolong the tradition of grassroots herbalism and local healers.
