Join Jess Sailer from Walnut Beach Wellness Center as we explore first aid gifts that nature gives us! Jess is a licensed Esthetician who specializes in integrative & organic skincare. She has always enjoyed making her own products from random kitchen ingredients to help her skin which paved the way for her to study esthetics and herbology.

During this class, Jess will help you learn about some plants that have specific healing properties (calendula, burdock, and plaintain) and how to best use them. Learn about other essential herbs to have in order to build an effective first aid kit or travel bag for cuts, scrapes, burns, wounds, poison ivy, and skin care.

She will also walk you through the process of making infused oils and salves. Each participant will bring home a sample of a salve and an oil to be infused at home.
