Practical Foraging: Summer Skin Salves & Sprays
Discover the wonders of the natural world and the incredible ways that plants provide for us during this practical foraging, summer skin workshop.
What to Expect during a Summer Skin Workshop:
We will take a foraging walk around the property to identify local wild plants whose plant constituents improve tissue elasticity, tissue repair to sun damaged skin, as well as reduce itching and inflammation cause by insect sting, bites, and poison ivy bubbles. Then, we will head back to the center to create our salves and sprays! The first portion of the event will take place outside. Pease dress according to the weather.
During the program, we will examine volatile oils, primary & secondary metabolites, antimicrobial, and vulnerary properties of wild plants. Each participant will make and take home a bottle of Sunburn & Poison Ivy/Itch spray, as well as a container of “gardener’s hands” salve, designed to refresh and soothe worn out hands that have spent the day digging in the dirt, playing with plants.
Admission is $65/pp. A portion of the proceeds is donated back to Peace Valley Nature Center.
