Herbal Oils, Salves, & Creams with Grandmother’s Medicine

We had such a great time in Vicky’s introductory herb class last month, we though we’d bring her back for another one!

This time Vicky will teach the basics of making herbal-infused oils, salves, and creams. Come learn the diverse ways you can use homemade herbal oils in the kitchen, cosmetically, and to ease what ails you.

You will leave this interactive workshop with remedies prepared by you using freshly harvested, in-season herbs and a booklet with all the information you need to make more remedies for yourself, family, friends, and community! You’ll go home with:

Herbal-Infused Oil
(the basis for fantastic recipes in the kitchen, wonderful massage/lymph moving oils, and cosmetics like salves/creams/lotions)
Herbal Healing Salve
Herbal Face Cream

No experience working with herbs required. All are welcome! $65 class fee includes all materials and can be paid in cash at the workshop. Class size limited to 12.

Reserve your spot now on Eventbrite!

Small Business Saturday – Nov. 29th

Founded by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday is held annually on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. As an alternative to Black Friday, when chain stores and big box stores entice shoppers with blowout holiday sales, Small Business Saturday celebrates independent businesses that give back so much to their communities.  For ever $100 spent, local businesses put $68 of that right back into the local economy.

 

On November 29th we’re hosting Key & Kite. Danny Montoya will be here selling his faceted wooden sculptures (wooden “gems”) and wooden pendant necklaces. Both make great holiday gifts!
