Practical Foraging: Winter Lip Balm Workshop
Discover the wonders of the natural world and the incredible ways that plants provide for us during this practical foraging, winter lip balm workshop.
What to Expect during a Winter Lip Balm Workshop:
We will take a foraging walk around the property to identify local wild plants who support general health & well-being, as well as go over drying methods so that we can use those plants year-round. Then, we will head back to the center to create our lip balms that soothe and moisten dry, cracked winter skin! 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, aromatic, and vulnerary properties of wild plants. Each participant will make and take home a set of 3 lip balms in a variety of scents (mint, lavender, rosemary, and scentless available to choose from), as well as a laminated lip balm recipe card – perfect for using yourself or using for gift-giving (they are perfect stocking stuffers!).
Admission is $65/pp. A portion of the proceeds is donated back to Peace Valley Nature Center.
