Self Spa: Make Salts, Scrubs and Face & Body Masks
Many bath and spa products contain ingredients that pollute water and harm the creatures who live in and depend on water. Why spend ten times more for stuff made with mystery ingredients and laced with industrial chemicals? You'll learn what each natural wholesome ingredient does according to tradition and contemporary knowledge, and how to combine them to meet individual needs. You'll work with clays, minerals, salts, oils and essential oils and come home with a face mask, a body scrub, and a bath salt! Best of all, we'll keep the water clean and safe for all living beings!

Lotions, Potions & Creams Lab

Learn how multi-purpose a simple lotion and cream made from water, rose water, vegetable wax, oil and a preservative from citrus fruit can be. The secrets of fabric softeners, hair conditioners and moisturizers will be revealed!

You'll learn how to use basic white lotion and cream as a:
hair conditioner
facial cleanser
a base for medicinal concoctions
(and fabric softener!!!)

and you'll customize it with wholesome, skin healing ingredients like fairly traded shea butter, coconut oil, cocoa butter, and oils such as avocado, hemp seed, apricot kernel oil, sesame, and sea buckthorn, plus essential oils if you like.

You'll leave with a 100ml metal pump bottle of lotion - a $15 value!!!
