Are you ready to start making your own herbal body oils, but feel intimidated by it?
Maybe you have tried already, but something was "off."
Maybe your oils weren't as potent as the ones you buy from your local herbalist.
Maybe there was a funky smell, or something went rancid before you were even able to use them.
There are many ways that one can go about making an infused oil--it's overwhelming! When can you use fresh herbs? Dried? What about resins? Hemp flower?
Then you have your carrier--what type of oil should you use? Can you swap it for tallow? What about cocoa butter?
How do you prevent rancidity without having to use a preservative?
If these questions have been echoing in your mind every time you are wanting to start working with whole plant medicine, your favourite herbalist duo Arielle de Martinez of SubLuna and Meg Edwards of Flora Wellness have an incredible workshop for you that you won't want to miss!

Get to know Arielle
Hi! I am Arielle.
As a medicine maker, I always find magic in the way that herbs choose for themselves to be crafted. I will never forget the first herbal oil I made, a pairing that appeared in my head in the form of an idea when I was out in the garden.
Over time, my herbal oils have become more and more potent and powerful, and when I began selling them in my apothecary, people were enchanted by their subtle smell and nourishing application.
Herbal oils are a great introduction to whole plant medicine, and I am so excited to help you on your journey to making your own, whether for your family, your community, or to up level your business!
Get to know Meg
I have been passionately studying herbal medicine for a decade now. What started out as a hobby, and a means by which I was able to heal my own health issues, has become my full time work. I forage the herbs, process the wild-crafted plants, formulate & test the products, design the labels... and this one woman show has grown a lot over the past few years.
Whether you are interested in taking a workshop or are just curious about herbal medicine, my goal is to support you on your journey of achieving the birthright of vibrant health. I'm glad you found your way here.
