Event Description

It's sorta funny that our skin often dries out during the wettest season. Buying commercial creams, salves and body oils can get quite pricey.

So, this class is going to teach the simplicity and ease of making our own creams, salves and body oils. We're going to make a ...

* Calendula Cream - moisten and nourish dry, chapped or red skin
* Heal All Salve – a potent all-purpose salve for scrapes, burns and “owies”
* Warming Massage Oil – a soothing blend of infused oils that will take the ache out!

In this 4 hour class, we'll go from start of finish on 3 recipes that you'll get to take home with you. We'll also sample a few different creams and salves and talk about the healing properties of the herbs we're using.

Date – Sat. Nov. 27

Time – 12pm - 4pm

Cost - $60 (includes samples in pretty containers)

**In order to support both the practice of D.I.Y. Gifting and to increase the likelihood of people applying what they've learned, each workshop has a Kit for sale.

Kit – Creams, Salves & Massage Oil – with curvy bottles and nice glass jars!
