I-TAL Acres Herbal Salves and Oils Workshop

October 5 @ 12:00 pm 2:00 pm

Essential oil bottle with thyme flowers

Applying herbs topically, as infused oils or salves, is one of the many ways we can utilize herbs for health and healing. Ed and Maya Skopal of I-TAL Acres will be leading a workshop which will involve identifying, learning about, and responsibly harvesting medicinal plants with a focus on oils and salves. Participants will learn about making tinctures as well as several methods of extracting herbs in oil, including a demonstration of preparing an herb for oil extraction. These infused herbal oils can be used as is, or made into healing herbal salves. Participants will either harvest herbs on site or will be provided some to make and take home their very own salve.

Please bring

  • Sunscreen/hat/sunglasses as the majority of the class will be outside.
  • Please also bring a sharp pair of scissors/shears and something to cut plant material into ( bowl or plate).

An email will be sent out to all participants reminding them of this information and also how to get here!
