Infused Herbal Oils with Greenthread Herbs

DESCRIPTION

Herbalist Josh Williams of Greenthread Herbs presents this make-and-take workshop on herbally infused oils. Oils are a wonderful way to work with herbal medicine. They allow us to massage, spread, drop, and soothe the herbs right where we need them most. In this class you’ll learn about some of the best plants for infusion in oils and some of the best oils to work with in making herbal medicines. Then, you’ll get to create your own infused herbal oil to take home and share!
