BOTANICAL OILS & BALMS ~ Virtual Workshop
Learn the foundations of crafting herbal infusions & botanical balms during this online class. We'll explore a rainbow of natural healing ingredients ~ including herbs, carrier oils, plant butters & essential oils ~ as you watch the infusion & balm making process from start to finish.
This workshop is designed to share the ins & outs of two foundational herbcrafting skills ~ making infused oils and herbal salves. We will explore both in detail with recipes & ratio suggestions, so you'll be able to create formulations with ingredients that are accessible to you.
Topics covered include:
• Preparation & methods for infusing fresh & dry plants into carrier oil
• Working with infused oils, botanical butters, beeswax & essential oils to craft nourishing balms for the skin
• Ratios for crafting your own custom formulations
• Ingredient selection & sourcing recommendations
• Shelf life & safety
This workshop includes 6 month access to the 2 hour video replay of a live virtual recording with Q&A, plus a downloadable PDF handout that includes all notes from the slides.
All participants will gain access to a community Discussion Board where you can post questions relating to the class and receive answers from the instructor.
