*This is a live, online class via Zoom.*
During this hands-on class we will infuse herbs in oil, and additionally make a shelf stable body moisturizer ready for use.
To get the most out of the class and participate in the fun, you will need:
  • 8 oz of organic olive or untoasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup of dried rose petals, chamomile, or caldendula flowers, or a combination of the three
  • 1/2 cup of organic shea butter
  • 1/2 cup of beeswax
  • some silicone ice cube trays that you don't mind getting oily
  • a saucepan, access to a stove, some measuring cups, and access to a freezer or fridge
  • 2x 16oz mason jars 
  • lavender and peppermint essential oil

If you have different sized jars or the ingredients are not quite the same, don't worry, it will be fine! (Beeswax comes in many forms, but the little pellets are easiest to work with, and readily available.

Note: If you would like to join in the practical remedy making, the sooner you order your supplies the better, as not all items will be in stock. Class will be designed to accommodate what you were able to find, so for ingredients that offer different choices, you only need one of the herbs to participate and not all of them.

Herb Suppliers: If you are a Brooklyn resident you can purchase dried herbs at the following  shops offering curbside pick up are: Antidote Apothecary, (Greenpoint), Remedies, ( Carroll Gardens), Radical Herbs, (Atlantic Avenue). Call all shops for details.
