Topical Skincare Basics: Infused Oils, Lip Balms, Skin Salve & Body Butter
Saturday, August 31st, 9:30 am - 11:00 am
This class in topical skincare basics will teach you to make infused oil, lip balms, skin salve and body butter. The skin is our largest organ and the first line of environmental defense. Why not treat it to the very best products you can make yourself! Salve and lip balm are made from herbal-infused oils and can be helpful in soothing the skin and correcting imbalances, depending on the herbs chosen. Body butter is very nourishing to the skin and fun to make. In this DIY class, you will learn to infuse oil with herbs for both culinary and skin care purposes, and make skin salve, lip balm and body butter to suit your needs and skin type! Therapeutic properties of each ingredient will be discussed. Students will leave with DIY “recipes” and a sample of products made in class.
