Arts & Entertainment Jackson library hosts workshop with ‘herb lady’

At this “make and take” workshop, Lipkin will guide participants through creating their very own Cupid's Cupboard. Lipkin describes the workshop this way, “Nothing says I love you like a handmade gift to be shared with a loved one. Bestow your sweetheart, that special friend or yourself with an assortment of delightful herbal goodies.

At this workshop you will create a variety of herbal items from body oils to relaxing herbal blends. Come prepared to play and have fun with lots of scents, herbs and decorations. Many recipes and handouts will be provided. Essential oils and handmade soaps will be available for purchase.”

Lipkin is a certified aroma therapist and is known as the “Herb Lady of Cedar Creek Farms.” She is a graduate of Western Carolina University with a degree in Environmental Health Science and travels throughout the Southeast conducting seminars about how herbs can be used for medicinal purposes, in cooking and in aromatic products.
