Calendula Oil Crafting & Body Oiling Workshop


Saturday, August 17th
10a-5p ET

Every household would benefit from having a bottle of calendula oil or salve on hand for basic first aid and skin care needs. Calendula keeps the skin healthy through its gentle lymphatic stimulating action with regular application. Calendula infused oil also encapsulates the warming and healing qualities of peak summer sun, making it an ideal oil to have on hand in the middle of winter, when we can all use a little solar energy. Calendula, often considered the sun in flower form and is a perfect oil to make around the summer solstice

You will also learn how to practice herbal body oiling - a grounding self massage practice, using gently warmed herbal infused oils. You’ll learn about the traditions and rituals associated with herbal body oiling, as well as be guided through a hands-on experience of herbal body oiling using calendula oil.

Mugwort Oil Crafting & Compress Workshop


Saturday, September 28th

Mugwort oil is a deep green herbal infused body oil widely known for both its physical and spiritually based affinities, and supports the integration of these two worlds into one being. 

Mugwort is a moving herb that helps relieve the body of stagnation. Mugwort is also aromatic and helps awaken the senses and bring forth a sense of vitality to the body during times of lethargy. It aids in the release of tension due to temporary ailments commonly associated with the menstrual cycle such as cramping, ovulatory pain, constipation or abdominal bloating. Mugwort can also stimulate the lymphatic system and encourage healthy blood flow to occur around dull or damaged skin.

During this workshop, you will:

- Learn the basic healing properties and benefical uses of mugwort oil
- Learn how to make mugwort oil under the guidance of an experienced herbalist
- Learn the basic healing properties and beneficial uses of castor oil
