Lotions and Potions: Make Your Own Skin Care Products

This event has passed.

Make nourishing self-crafted lotions, lip balms, and face creams using herbs, oils, and other everyday household ingredients. Empowering yourself to make your own skin care products will reduce your exposure to store-bought toxins in fancy, unnecessary packaging and allow you to make the decisions about what goes on and in your body all while saving you money. There will be information about different oils for different skin types, which herbs are best for your skin, and which compliment other health concerns. Together we’ll create a luscious lotion, a lip balm and a silky face cream for you to take home. We will choose herbs that delight the senses and recipes that not only equip you to make your next batch at home, but also can be altered to fit your needs and creativity.
