There's a Salve for That Class July 20, 2014
Perhaps after going through the Medicinal Tea Class you will now feel compelled to extend your medicinal plant knowledge to salves. On July 20, 2014, we will be hosting a class titled There's a Salve for That! Most of us are surrounded by medicinal plants that grow wild but we just don't know it. For just about any first aid situation you can think of, there literally is a plant for that. Once you identify that plant, all you have to do is learn how to harness the medicinal properties in a salve and you will have that power to your disposal for up to a year! You can replace all your store bought first aid creams with remedies that you can easily create in your own home. Since everything you put on your skin goes into your body, its a good practice to eliminate the chemicals that come in store bought creams that can do more harm than good in the long run. In the salves that we make not only are they extremely effective but they contain only all natural products.
In this class, we will start with plant identification in a near-by park as well as in an urban community. Then we will head back to the classroom to make an herbal salve made from ingredients we found in the field. Each participant will go home with a 1 oz tin of salve and handouts. This process is so easy and fun that it is a class for both adults and kids.
The goal of Resiliency Training is always to empower individuals to be self-reliant so you will gain the tools and knowledge you need to continue make salves on your own. And we will always be available for consultation after class if you have any questions. To sign up for this class, go to www.resiliencytraining.net.
