Day 12: Making Herbal Oils & Pine Needle Tea

Today we make an herbal oil with plants to heal dry and injured skin, and enjoy some pine needle tea to enhance our Vitamin C intake. Some of the plants from the yard we plan to use for the bee’s wax salve include Cottonwood/Poplar Buds and Plantain Leaf. We’ll also add some flowers we dried last summer, including Calendula and St. John’s Wort. We’ll end the broadcast with the classic song “Wild Mountain Thyme.”

Join us for our 40 day “You Healthy? Go Outside!” Quarantine Broadcast Series – Family Friendly Music & Earth Skills Activities with Kim & Chris Chisholm.
