Second Grade: Herbal Salve

 The Second Grade was so lucky to work with my parent volunteer Amanda to create an amazing herbal salve to give as a gift for the holidays. Amanda soaked yarrow, comfrey, and plantain in sesame oil for several days. Then, the children filtered the oil and mixed it with coconut oil, St. John's Wort extract, and beeswax.

 The children bottled it in small jars where it hardened into a wonderful salve for the body.
