tinctures and salve

This is a two part series on March 24 & April 21. Attendance is required for both dates.

Herbal salves and tinctures can be used for a variety of things; learn how to relieve stress or a bug bite at our two part series. Participants will get hands on step-by-step experience making an herbal (alcohol based) tincture, and an infused oil, and use our oil to make a salve. We’ll troubleshoot some common issues that come up when practicing the art of medicine making and talk about the uses of tinctures. Everyone will go home with the tincture and a salve that we make together.

Participants can (but don’t have to) bring a 4–6 oz glass jar with a lid. All materials will be provided.

Kelly McCarthy of Attic Apothecary, is a west Philly based clinical herbalist, medicine maker, and educator with a decade of experience to draw from. She enjoys teaching people about common plants and how to use them in cheap and effective ways without a lot of fancy equipment.
