Salves are one of the oldest forms of topical applications for healing. Simply made with bee’s wax, oil and herbs, salves are time-tested and safe. Come learn which easily sourced herbs are best for various conditions: rashes, burns, insect bites and stings, dry skin and, even, aching muscles. Help Cindy make salve and take home a sample of your own.

Instructor: Cindy Meredith is the owner of The Herb Cottage, a rural nursery in Lavaca County, Texas. In business since 1998, Cindy has a wide range of knowledge about gardening.
