Desert Botanical Garden: Making Creosote Salves

Creosote has long been called the “fragrance of the desert” due to the signature smell we all recognize after a desert rain.
Beyond the alluring aromas is creates, creosote has been used by the O’odham for its medicinal properties to treat a variety of ailments. Participants will learn about the creosote and a few of its traditional uses, as well as cautions to observe when deciding to use plants as food or medicine.   Watch and assist in the making of a creosote salve for the skin and nails, and take home a small jar of salve. Instructed by Jacob Butler, Chair of Native Seeds/SEARCH and community gardens coordinator for the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community. Transportation to the class location is not provided.
