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.


Learn how to infuse herbs into medicated 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 (and you will take home):
-an herbal oil infusion of your choice 
-a medicated lip balm
-a moisturizing herbal body cream

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 for body care, massage and therapeutic applications
-how to pick the right carrier oil for different uses and applications
-preservation and longevity of oils and creams

You’ll leave class with the recipes and the know-how to confidently make medicinal oils, creams and balms of your own at home.
