Event Overview

At the end of a hard work week, there's nothing like a little R&R to get you back in the right frame of mind.



That's why we're so excited for this Dabble class, that's a blissful combination of both rest and relaxation. We'll be learning how to make essential beauty products from scratch with all-natural, handmade ingredients. Indulge yourself with a helping of healing essential oil blending, a basic rundown on aromatherapy and a lesson in DIY lotions, soaps and bath salts ... perfect for spoiling yourself and your friends.



No experience is necessary to enjoy this chemical-free, wholesome class and all materials are provided. Walk away with a 'zen kit' of homemade stress-relief products that'll leave you inspired to unwind in other small ways.

Might we suggest you start with a bubble bath followed by a generous lathering of all your new goodies? (Don't worry, you can thank us later.)

    Would have liked the class to be better executed - like putting the lotions in small containers or tubes. For $40, it would have been nice to not have all materials in plastic bags.

    I really enjoyed learning the differences between the all of the oils. I just wish there were more of the standard oils to select from. We were given a packet with all sorts of different oils that seemed to be standard, but a lot of them were not available at the time of class. I wish there would have been coffee beans to erase each oil smell. I left with a giant headache. I also thought for the price of the class the samples we left with were minimal. Also giving us the samples in plastic bags. Plastic is permeable and my scents all smell the same now. Mini glass jars would have been great. I understand the purpose of the class was for us to learn about mixing and figuring out what worked well. But leaving with more than 2 tablespoons of each finished product would have been great.
