Class Add-ons: Lip Balm & Lotion
Can be booked on the online calendar with a class or workshop.
Important Note: No fragrance is added to any product starting in January 2018; the smell causes the teacher skin allergies, but they are very easy to add to any product and will be discussed in class.
Lip Balm ($20/person; adds 30 minutes):
Make your own creamy lip balms with a tried-and-true recipe using 100% natural ingredients, including beeswax and other moisturizing oils & butters.
We'll discuss the materials & ingredients needed, including preservatives, and where to get them; how to adjust the recipe if desired.
Then you'll make the only lip balm you'll ever want to use again! ...and with no harmful ingredients. You'll go home with 5 tubes and a thorough, detailed instructional handout, including the ingredients needed/recipe and a list of materials/equipment & online suppliers.
Lotion ($40/person; adds 1 hour):
Natural lotion is made with natural oils, butters & other skin-nourishing ingredients like aloe vera; there are no chemicals and nothing that will dry out your skin, so you only need to use a small amount to fully moisturize your skin. You will notice that your skin will become softer & more moisturized over time by switching to natural lotion.
We'll cover the following:
- The different types of natural lotions and their pros & cons, including how to work with preservatives and make a sunscreen or bug-repellent lotion
- The materials needed & where to get them, as well as the lotion recipe and how to adjust it based on your personal preferences
- Making & customizing your lotion (what I call water-based lotion) with the ingredients that work best for your skin type (a variety of ingredients are provided like jojoba oil for sensitive skin, rose water for inflamed skin, shea butter for dry/damaged skin, coconut oil for eczema, etc.)
In this class, an informational, ingredient chart is provided so that you can choose the ingredients & customize your lotion based on your skin-care needs.
You'll go home with 4 fl oz of lotion, the ingredient chart and a thorough, detailed instructional handout, including all of the information that we'll cover & a list of online suppliers.
