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.

Vicky Salcido-Cobbe strives to live her life with purpose and joy. After years of depression, chronic illness, and self-destructive habits, her life changed in an instant when a clinician offered her a bottle of herbal extract as medicine in 2009. Since then, she has been amazed time & time again by the effectiveness and power of nature’s medicine. She is the hedge-witch behind Grandmother’s Medicine, a small-scale herbal apothecary that uses herbs grown or wild-harvested by her hands or by small farmers local to her in Northern California.
