Herbal Creams, Gels, and Body Butters
Sat, December 5th, 12-3:00pm, $40

It's the near the holidays! Come learn how to make some of my favorite products to give as gifts- herbal creams, gels and body butters. Creams and lotions are truly magical preparations that bring two liquids that repel one another, water and oil, together with the help of an emulsifier. Creams and lotions have a short shelf life and are one of the preparations that manufacturers put a lot of preservatives in that can be toxic to your health. Learn how to make a therapeutic cream that doesn't have all those toxic ingredients. Gels are an oil free version of a cream that is non greasy when applied topically to the skin. Body butters are my number one product to give during the holidays because they are super lush and nourishing to the skin- a treat that anyone receiving would love! Come learn how easy and cost effective it is to learn how to make your own therapeutic products.
Students should bring 1 once ounce sized salve container and 1 one ounce sized tincture bottle with a spritzer top to take product home in.
