How to Make an Herbal Salve with Rachel Playe

An herbal salve is an infusion of plant material in oil and beeswax to be applied externally. Come to class to learn how to nurse bruises, sooth pain and nourish your skin.  Come learn how to make your own salve and oils at home.  You will leave with a 1oz tin of whatever salve we make at home along with the knowledge to do it yourself.

Rachel Playe is an herbalist based in Providence.  In 2008, while farming, she realized she was more interested in the weeds she was pulling than growing only vegetables.  This set her out a long path in learning about herbal medicine and agriculture.  Rachel owns Radia Herbs, a small herbal products company which sources pesticide free herbs from their own gardens, local farmers or other ethical growers.  She is continuing her studies with Mary Blue of Farmacy Herbs in Providence.
