Medicinal Native Plants for Making Salves | A Workshop with Darcy Williamson

June 1, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


Meet at Sawtooth Botanical Garden at 9:00 Saturday morning begins with an outing into surrounding forests for harvesting herbs, barks and roots for medicinal salve and lip balm making.  What we gather will depend upon what the season has provided for us.  Bring a sack lunch for our noon break, followed by a recap of plants harvested and their medicinal values in salves and balms.

Once we have returned to the Sawtooth Botanical Garden, we will garble (prepare our plant material) before making our salves and balms.  Plan to finish the day at 5:00 P.M.

At day’s end each student will receive a copy of Healing Plants of the Rocky Mountains, a Native American Medicine Plant Chart, five finished salves and ten lip balms.

Cost is $60 per student. Students taking both of Darcy Williamson’s classes (also see Medicinal Native Plants for Making Teas) will receive a $15 discount for a total of $120. Students taking both classes will receive one copy of Darcy’s book and the medicine chart. Register online at, call in with payment, or stop by the garden. For full materials list and additional information please contact or call 208-726-9358.
