Doa I am so sorry you feel this way. I would like to make it up to you. I will write that the retail value (we sell these products in stores across the country) was over $30. I spent a great deal of time covering the origin, properties and the use of each organic carrier oil to which you had access and via email I provided my exclusive recipes that listed the quantities of each ingredient that you should use. Please get in touch with us so we can provide additional products and information to you at our expense.
There currently are no dates scheduled for this course. Message the host to request a new date or private class.
In this fun, hands on class you will learn how to make your own organic, all-natural, plant based personal care products. While you concoct your own unique products to take home, you will learn about the properties of the large selection of organic ingredients that we provide.
We will make a deodorants, lip balms and lotion bars. You will take home signature products that you will create. We provide a large selection of organic carrier oils (Argan, Jojoba, Coconut, Rosehip, Pumpkin Seed, Grapeseed, Almond, Avocado, and more) and over 40+ organic essential oils so you can make products perfectly suited to you.
This is a BYOB Class. Come for a fun, informative evening and leave with newfound knowledge, killer products created by you and maybe a new friend or two.

Doa D.DIY Organic Body Care: Lip Balms, Lotion Bars and Deodorants
Not worth the money. We did not get any guidance as to which oils work together. We were not given amount of ingredients. basically we were just given vials to mix stuff!.The lotion bar turned out with small pieces of wax which makes it hard to use as it leaves residues on the skin. The teacher had a fun personality but that is about it.From Teacher:
Matthew M.DIY Organic Body Care: Lip Balms, Lotion Bars and Deodorants
My friend and I decided to take this class because we are really into fragrances and have recently started creating our own. This was a great introduction to the basics of making your own body care products at home.
Diane H.DIY Organic Body Care: Lip Balms, Lotion Bars and Deodorants
I enjoyed learning about the essential oils and their benefits. I thought the area of the location wasn't the best and the space itself was small (which lead to a few things breaking). However, I was impressed by the variety of self-care products we were able to create in two hours. The body lotion I created turned out the best. I would recommend that the teacher substitute a different self-care product for the deodorant (it would have been better to create a solid deodorant as opposed to a cream one).From Teacher:
Diane thanks for attending. Glad you learned something new! I am sorry you do not like the Logan Square neighborhood. It is a family neighborhood with many new businesses opening. I love Logan Square and very proud to be a Logan Square business owner. This was the first class that something broke. Only one thing broke. As I explained in class, I do not teach a stick deodorant for 2 reasons: 1. Not enough time in class 2. I am not giving out that recipe.
Danielle J.DIY Organic Body Care: Lip Balms, Lotion Bars and Deodorants
Awesome class! I'd highly recommend it to friends! I will go again too! Grab a few friends and go make some goodies! Nathan was awesome! He is super passionate about his organic oils and other ingredients. I truly enjoyed his personality and teaching style, very laid-back!From Teacher:

Chrisy C.DIY Organic Body Care: Lip Balms, Lotion Bars and Deodorants
This class was a great experience! Nathan's energy was contagious and he had so much knowledge to share about the products and the process. In addition to the lip balm, lotion bar and deodorant, we were also able to make our own scent stick which was a nice bonus :) I would definitely recommend this class and instructor to other Dabblers!From Teacher:
Thanks so much for attending. So glad you liked the surprise scent stick that we made.

Michella - Thanks for attending and inquiring about different recipes.
Kim I.DIY Organic Body Care: Lip Balms, Lotion Bars and Deodorants
This was a great class learned a lot. My only concern is that we did not receive any handouts so we could continue to make the items at home for ourselves.From Teacher:
Kim, Thanks for attending! As a Green certified company we try to pass on information in digital format as much as possible. You should have received an email that detailed the recipe including the step, ingredients and equipment needed. Please let me know if you did not receive this email and I will resend. Thanks!

Andrea K.DIY Organic Body Care: Lip Balms, Lotion Bars and Deodorants
This class was fun and we made a lot of things! My lotion bar didn't turn out so well, but it was a good introduction to making natural personal care products. I recommend bringing a friend or two -- it's a social class!From Teacher:
Thanks for coming to class and your feedback. Glad you mentioned the thing about essential oils as we had planned to implement a special portion of class to cover those more in depth going forward. Thanks again!
Beth H.DIY Organic Body Care: Lip Balms, Lotion Bars and Deodorants
The content of the class was interesting but it took awhile.From Teacher:
Thanks for attending and your feedback. I am sorry the class ran over a bit. We made 2 extra products not normally made in the class so that added on a bit of extra time. I am sorry that we ran over and the inconvenience it caused you.
Aja H.DIY Organic Body Care: Lip Balms, Lotion Bars and Deodorants
Great class. Looking forward to the product recipes and more classesFrom Teacher:
Steph L.DIY Organic Body Care: Lip Balms, Lotion Bars and Deodorants
I had a great time! The class was hands on and informative. I left with goodies and more knowledge on the subjectFrom Teacher:
Very glad you were able to make and stuck it out despite being under the weather. Thanks for the high five!
Megan K.DIY Organic Body Care: Lip Balms, Lotion Bars and Deodorants
This class was great. Nathan really knows his stuff and has answers to ALL the questions. I am much less intimidated by the thought of making my own products after his class, which is taught in three acts. We were each able to scent our own products in addition to learning how everything is made, which was a nice touch--you get something you are bound to love. I am wearing the deodorant I made last night and so far it is great!From Teacher:
Megan thanks for your feedback. Very glad you had a great time!
Megan M.DIY Organic Body Care: Lip Balms, Lotion Bars and Deodorants
Nathan is very sweet and knowledgeable. The class was fun and laid back. When you get there it looks a little shady, bc the facility is being redone, but once you're inside it's ok.
Thanks Megan for the feedback. I really enjoyed having you in class.
Yes our building does look like something out of Scooby Doo right now. However, we are on the up and up. Do312, PBR, Jugganauts, Bang Bang Chicago, North Coast Organics and other businesses occupy this space in addition to the bar and music venue on the 2nd floor.
I will increase signage to put newcomers at easy thanks to your feedback. Thanks for leaving an honest review. It helps me to improve the class.
Kelley L.DIY Organic Body Care: Lip Balms, Lotion Bars and Deodorants
We had a fantastic time at the workshop. The teacher is super knowledgeable and engaging to speak with. We learned some great information on oils and treatments for skin. In addition the take-away products were lovely. Really fun experience.From Teacher:
Thanks Kelley. Hope your group had a great time. I used your feed private feed back to help navigate people. Thanks!
Corinne K.DIY Organic Body Care: Lip Balms, Lotion Bars and Deodorants
This was a fun class showing how easy it is to make skincare products that are nontoxic. The teacher really knew his stuff and was passionate about sharing his knowledge.From Teacher:
Thanks for your review! Great to have you in class.
Miroslava B.DIY Organic Body Care: Lip Balms, Lotion Bars and Deodorants
I say Why not! You'll meet new group of people, watch pure simple ingredients being mixed together to form body care products, while sipping on a wine and smelling different essensial oils. Did I mentioned very enthusiastic presenter/owner?!?From Teacher:
Victor V.DIY Organic Body Care: Lip Balms, Lotion Bars and Deodorants
The class was simple and too the point. The instructor was very knowledgeable as this is what he does professionally. What you took home was very nearly worth the cost of the class in retail value. Though I went to the first session which he offered at a discount as he knew there would be hiccups the first time. The hiccups were very VERY minor, and the sort of thing I expect in any workshop style class. Even at the full rate for this class it's an excellent deal. I would highly recommend it to anyone.From Teacher:
Victor! Thanks for attending. It was lovely to have you in class. Thanks for the private feed back, it will help make the class even better!
James C.DIY Organic Body Care: Lip Balms, Lotion Bars and Deodorants
It was a very informative class on subjects I have been looking into here and there. As a massage therapist, it is a great idea to use and potentially make all natural, organic products. I will definitely be making more lotion in the future. :)From Teacher:
Thanks James! I highly recommend a massage oil made only from carrier oils in addition to the lotion bar.
Christine N.DIY Organic Body Care: Lip Balms, Lotion Bars and Deodorants
Nate was a great teacher! He was super informative on the different types of oils needed and why we should/shouldn't be using certain items. I definitely recommend this class!From Teacher:
Thanks for the public and private feedback. Future classes will benefit. Thanks for attending.
