Join Dawn Ireland Herbalist for a day of creating natural herbal skin care products using hedgerow herbs and pure plant based ingredients.
Whether you have sensitive skin and worry about what you are putting on your body, want to to create unique products you can’t buy, or you simply wish to have more control over what you use, this workshop will give you the knowledge and confidence to experiment with your own recipes.
You will learn how to identify, harvest and process suitable plants. Discover their beneficial properties and make them into luxury products to take home.
Full guidance and recipe sheets are provided, with resources and formulas to swap around ingredients to tailor make your own unique beauty products.
The day will include cream making, lip balms and natural toothpaste.
Those with allergies should make their needs known before the day. Nut oils, or particular plants which cause a problem can easily be excluded, though nut oils are used at the venue.
