Balms and Salves have the added benefit of not requiring any chemical preservatives (so they can be made 100% naturally). Students will learn the best oils, waxes and other ingredients to use in balms for their beneficial properties. Balms can be very concentrated and are valued for their healing benefits. Students will also learn the secrets of properly incorporating (into their balms/salves) handmade or purchased herbal tinctures, oil infusions and essential oils. As a BONUS, you will also learn how to make a Healing Zinc Balm, which can be used by adults for skin inflammation or babies for diaper rash.
Students will take home helpful handouts, a 2 oz. Customized Soothing Body Balm, a 1 oz. Winter Respiratory Salve, and a 2 oz. Healing Zinc Salve (for adults or babies).
