Join us for a fun and relaxing summer evening making homemade, premier-quality body care products. For a sliver of the cost of normal shelf products, we will be

creating blends utilizing simple, organic, safe ingredients suited to your own personal skin care needs. You’ll get to take home the products you make, along

with the knowledge to keep on making more!

You will receive a brief background on creating herbal preparations as well as special backyard herbs suitable for use on your beautiful, glowing body. Most of class is hands-on, crafting products with like-minded participants. Did you know that everything that comes into contact with our skin, such as moisturizers, perfumes, and haircare products, gets absorbed into our bodies? Learn to make your own healthy, rejuvenating skin care kit complete with: body balm, masque, scrub, hydrosol, and more! Please come prepared to make and sample our creations.
