Ever wanted to learn how to make your own body care products? Many commercial body care products may contain ingredients or chemicals linked to toxicities. Your skin is your body's largest organ. If you can't eat it, why put it on your skin?
In this workshop, Annabelle will demonstrate how to make a homemade moisturizer cream, lip balm, and exfoliating scrub, all made with natural ingredients, and many of which can be found in your own kitchen! She will discuss the ingredients used for these products, and how the recipes can be customized to suit individuals' needs.
Everyone will receive a sample made in the demo.
