Designed to empower the healer in each of us and bring the simplicity, delights and benefits of botanical medicine into our every day lives.
Our Salve Making workshop will explore the basic elements of creating a therapeutic balm. The process will be thoroughly demonstrated and examined, start to finish, giving participants the opportunity to experience each aspect from harvest to jar.
Each student will take home their own jar of Healing Salve.
All materials necessary for creating an Herbal Salve will be provided. In addition to sampling examples of different salves, students will make and take home their very own.Cancellation Policy
Molly Jo was raised and nurtured by the Appalachian Foothills. It was in the luscious, deciduous forests where she first began to learn the stories and powers of the local flora. As a student of environmental education and ecology, Molly Jo is inspired by the inherent wisdom of the earth. From the eastern deciduous forest; to the Arizona desert where she received her diploma of Western Herbalism; to the redwood forests of the pacific northwest; and to the base of the great Rocky Mountains, she has been immersed in ethnobotany: the study of the relationship between plants and people. Molly Jo believes wholeheartedly that as we deepen our relationship to the plants that nourish, feed and heal us, we ensure a vibrant life of balance for all. As an educator, she aims to empower individuals, families and communities to understand the core of their wellness and illness, and co-create a life which facilitates health of mind, body, and soul.
