Healing skin salves made with beeswax and medicinal plants infused into sunflower oils can soothe, repair, heal, disinfect our wounds, cuts, scrapes, chapped, itchy and dry skin. Who is growing around us, and even what we may grow in our own gardens can help keep us strong and healthy. Lori Snyder, a Metis Herbalist, will share recipes and resources as she demonstrates how to prepare and use your own beeswax healing skin salves for family and friends.
Lori stewards a medicine wheel garden at the Moberly Arts and Cultural Centre. She is currently working with the David Suzuki Foundation as a Butterfly Ranger and consulting with both the foundation and the YWCA at Evelyn Crabtree on native plants and their importance in our ecological relationship with other living beings. She is the Artist in Residence at Hastings Community Centre for 2021, offering the teachings of plant wisdom through various art mediums.

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
