Time-Tested Salves: Bee's Wax, Herbs, and Oils

Salves are one of the oldest forms of topical applications for healing. Simply made with bee’s wax, oil and herbs, salves are time-tested and safe. Come learn which easily sourced herbs are best for various conditions: rashes, burns, insect bites and stings, dry skin and, even, aching muscles. Help Cindy make salve and take home a sample of your own.
