Explore ancient and contemporary methods of using plant-based raw materials to make an eclectic variety of useful herbal products. All products can be personally customized to suit your own needs. We use organic ingredients as much as possible. In this class we will make:
- Luscious Lotion: An all-purpose, non-greasy lotion that is perfect for anyone, anywhere, anytime. It can be unscented or you can choose from a variety of essential oils.
- Queen of Hungary’s Water: An ancient vinegar-based formula created by the Roma of eastern Europe. It is an all-purpose astringent skin, hair, and body toner that cleanses deeply and balances pH.
- Aromatherapy Sprays. These are used for many purposes including body and room fragrance, attitude adjustment, household cleaning, yoga mat cleaning, insect repellent and more. You will create two different sprays.
Cost: $65 – 3 hours
Class information: I offer a seasonally rotating series of classes in food fermentation, beer and cider brewing, and in botanicals- making herbal lotions, potions, balms, salves, serums and other natural remedies. There are pre-scheduled classes 1-2 times monthly. I also offer private, custom individual and group classes which can be held at your place or mine. You can select the products that you want to make by browsing the Ongoing, Private and Group Classes section. Many classes can be adapted for children with adult helpers. Contact me for more information about private classes.
If you have questions about ingredients or allergies, please contact me. It is often possible to customize product ingredients. All classes include handouts and recipes so you can continue making products after the class at home.
