Herbal salve making is a foundational skill for any herbalist.
Herbal salves is a convenient way to deliver topical (on the skin) herbal medicine. Additionally, a salve makes it very easy to carry herbal medicine with you in your purse or picket. The starting point for an herbal salve is with an herbal infusion. Herbal infusions are typically made by heating herbs in oil to extract the therapeutic constituents. This process takes anywhere from a few weeks (solar infusion) to a few hours (stove top).
In this class, you will learn how to infuse herbs and make salve in 1 hour or less. Each class participant will walk away with a 1 oz. container of salve, plus an instruction sheet on herbal salve making. During this class, students will:
1. Understand the basics of herbal infusion.
2. Walk away with the skills to make your own herbal salves.
3. Learn a quick, easy way to use dried herbs to make an infusion and salve in 1 hour or less.
4. Learn how to add essential oils to your salves.
5. Experience the joy of working with your sister/brother herbalists.
This class will be held Saturday, September 29th from 10am-noon EST.

As a Registered Nurse in the Western medical system for nearly 30 years, Denise became frustrated with sick care and decided to dedicate herself to learning/teaching how to live a healthy lifestyle. She supplemented her Bachelor of Science degree with a Diploma in Complimentary Alternative Medicine (CAM). The CAM degree focused on a dual major in Herbalism and Aromatherapy. She also expanded her long term yoga practice into a teaching role by acquiring her 200 RYT certification. Her ultimate goal is to see herbal medicine become a part of the daily life, just as it used to be in the past.
Denise resides along the coast near St. George Island, Apalachicola National Forest, Tate’s Hell State Forest and one of the country’s most prestigious research labs, the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve up in the Florida Panhandle.

Tucked away on three acres in the heart of Tallahassee is a fascinating property hidden from view. A visitor walks down a wooded path and is greeted by a majestic live oak tree shading a soft lawn. This tree, a sapling in the time of Shakespeare, keeps company with something not seen in Florida, an English Tudor-style cottage, which looks as if it comes from the pages of a child’s book of fairy tales. With a steeply gabled roof, diamond-pattern leaded glass windows and stone foundation, the cottage continues its vigil over the gardens, labyrinth and tree surrounding it. A majority of the classes will be held inside the cottage, which is handicap accessible with a ramp in the back of the cottage leading up to the back door. If there is an overflow of parking, signs will direct you to the appropriate lot. There is a restroom in the cottage and portable restrooms outside.
