Having an appreciation for the natural ingredients, understanding where they come from and their precious qualities can inspire us to bring a whole new level of cherishing to our everyday skin care rituals.

In this course you will be introduced to a range of botanical ingredients that we will then use in mixing and making various beauty products for you to take home with you. We will spend some time getting familiar with a range of essential oils, their incredible scents, as well as their health and wellbeing properties. You will feel confident to choose your own blends, with support, to enrich the already nourishing base products we will put together.

The ingredients used will be of the highest quality and organic where possible. This workshop is open to all, and no experience is necessary. Everything will be provided for you although you may like to bring your own notebook and a pen. Please let Laura know if you have any allergies, especially those pertaining to the skin.
