In this two-part series, learn how to identify and process commonly grown herbs (and weeds!) in the Sierra Nevada foothills and make them into concentrated herbal preparations you can use at home. Learn to create your own fresh, customized products without the cost (or unwanted ingredients!) of commercial products. Part I is described below. See more details on Part II.
PART I: OILS, CREAMS & BALMS
Learn how to process herbs into medicinal oils, creams, and balms. We’ll start with a plant walk to get to know some common medicinal garden herbs, weeds and native plants. You’ll gain familiarity with some basic concepts in plant identification and learn a variety of herbal applications for health and wellness.
Together, we’ll make:
-an herbal oil infusion of your choice
-a medicated lip balm
-a moisturizing herbal body cream
-a deeply nourishing and skin protective face cream
add $15 to class tuition to take home a sample of each
We’ll explore wider applications of these herbal preparations, including:
-how to make medicated creams for specific conditions like injuries, pain, or eczema
-how to extract CBDs and THC for medicated oils, creams & balms
-how to process fresh and dried herbs into herbal oils
-how to pick the right oil for different uses and applications
-preservation and longevity of products
You’ll leave class with the recipes and the know-how to confidently make medicinal oils, creams and balms of your own at home.
