Looking to make home made gifts
Or for a little self-pampering?
We love this workshop and we think you will too. We’ll show you how to make some beauty products using easily accessible or natural ingredients. You’ll get to make and take home a beeswax lip salve, an amazing essential oil scented moisturiser for the face or body, facial scrubs and masks using kitchen cupboard ingredients plus a relaxing mint foot lotion.
You’ll not only walk away with a selection of lotions and potions to sample at home but also some comprehensive notes. We reckon these products are as good as if not better than shop-bought versions and with no harsh chemicals! You can also tailor recipes to your own preferences. What’s more they make great gifts and we’ll share some ideas to create the extra wow factor!
