Healing Salve


Tickets are not available as this event has passed.

Join Courtney Parker for an afternoon of creating a healing salve.  This workshop is designed to empower participants to meet their own first aid needs with a basic preparation.  Participants can expect to learn what a salve is and what its uses are.  They will leave with basic knowledge of common healing plants, essential oils and how to infuse those properties into salves.  During this hands-on workshop, participants will craft their own healing salve that will prepare them to replicate the process at home.

About the Facilitator:  A gardener first and foremost, my love for plants and people led me to study holistic herbalism in 2015 at the Blue Ridge School for Herbal Medicine. I graduated with 130 hours of study and earned a certificate for Community Herbalist.  Since then, I’ve added more time to my studies and focused mainly on topical body preparations such as salves, oils, and lotions.
