Event Overview

Your skin, your largest organ, is the barrier for your body against pathogens, dirt, and foreign objects. It is also incredibly absorbent, taking in what is put on it. Join Andrea Mattson of Edible Alchemy and learn the basics of creating natural skincare remedies. The spring class offers a whole new set of organic body care make-and-takes! Treat your mom, bring a friend, and spoil yourself.

Your skin, your largest organ, is the barrier for your body against pathogens, dirt, and foreign objects. It is also incredibly absorbent, taking in what is put on it and bringing it into the body and bloodstream. So what you put ON your body is just as important as what you put in it!

Identify where your own skin could use a boost, then indulge in a oat clay rosemary masque and scrub to smooth and detoxify your skin. Then, Andrea shows you how to create a lemon and apple cider toner to brighten and balance your skin’s pH, before sharing her secrets for mixing up basic products like coconut coffee cinnamon scrub & a refreshing minty foot balm. Leave armed with nourishing, all-natural products and the know-how to mix up your own concoctions at home.

Andrea, aka Gaea Lady, has been moving in mysterious ways since she was 3 years old and hasn't ever given it up. An enchantress by nature, she sees her body as her instrument to express herself. Studying classical forms to start her career, her attention soon went the way of the ethereal including fire, hoops and hypnotizing fabrics. Dabbling amid any form she can get her toes on, her style borrows from the graceful and energetic mix of all she’s studied in the past. Winner of “Best Debut” & “Most Classic” at the Burlesque Hall of Fame 2016. Featured at Untitled’s Unbridled, The Naughty Little Cabaret, Rouge!, The Drifter, the Chicago Hoop Dancers, in the Kiss Kiss Cabaret, and with Pyrotechniq Fire Troupe, she travels all over the US performing & teaching.
