Event Overview

Did you know that with just a few key natural ingredients from your cupboard, you can take a normal body lotion from simple to AWESOME? We will teach you how - and show you, step by step, how to make an all-natural Lotion Body Bar from scratch! You get to pick between Relaxing, Rejuvenating, and Revitalizing properties. (Class is available in Spanish as well)

In this class, we will:

1. LEARN about the benefits of natural ingredients. We discuss how the most common artificial chemicals may affect your skin, and which of those you should avoid. You will get unique tips & tricks to take home with you and use immediately.
2. CREATE an all-natural skin smoothing Lotion Bar (from scratch!) using a variety of wonderful ingredients provided. We will provide a pretty decorative package for you to take home.
3. BOOST your current basic body lotion using natural ingredients, to achieve your favorite holistic effect.

All tools and ingredients will be provided. If you have a lotion/cream of preference, just bring it for the "Boost your Body Lotion" workshop. If you don't have one, we will provide a very simple base lotion but it works better when you bring something that you are familiar with and can find anywhere. You will be able to take the body bar and improved lotion home with you that same day. A fun and informative way to spend the afternoon!

    Maribel and Angela were great. They were nice and very patient, and very informative too. I would definitely take the class again.
