About the Event
Herbal infused oils are a wonderful way to support your body with needed nourishment. They are very soothing, moistening, and softening, making them good for minor skin problems such as abrasions, burns, rashes (depending on the rash, and dry skin. They should not be used on new cuts or wounds because the oil can trap bacteria and help infection spread. We will be working with Calendula, a safe herb for all ages.
To turn an infused oil into a salve, simply add bees wax. The bees wax allows the herbal preparation to stay at the surface of your skin instead of penetrating into the tissues like oils do. Bees wax is high in vitamin A, as well as full of anti-inflammatory properties. It also provides addition preservation qualities.
