Tunison, Selena

Greetings herb lovers. Happy 2016!
I hope you are all looking forward to another fun and educational year at the Herbal Guild. At the February meeting we will learn how to make a lovely body cream that Rosemary Gladstar has created and shared with us. It is fairly easy to make (after getting a hands on lesson from the guild board — namely Selena) and after this class you will be able to create your own body creams with all those oils you have been saving for something special! We will have all the ingredients and jars ready for you to take home ($3 supply fee) a sample to enjoy and be inspired to make next time you need a healthy, happy body cream.

Selena Tunison Hi y’all! I’m a contradiction in terms. I was a Cosmetologist in the 1980s so I love herbal lotions, salves, and oils. I then became a Combat Medic and Practical Nurse, Army trained in the 1990s with a bunch of ER training. In the 2000s I became a nurse in the Birth Center at United Hospital. I’ve been at the OB/GYN clinic, Post Partum, Newborn Nursery, and now as a scrub nurse in Labor and Delivery. I love Western Herbalism but I was a grower first and learned everything I could about growing plants in Zone 4–5 during the long winter’s months and I’m from Alabama. So that’s where —y’all— came from and I hope I can be of service to you on your Herbal Journey.
