Date & Time
10:00 am - 5:30 pm
Elizabeth Scholl and Ginger Andro
While a particular herb or essential oil may appear as a “miracle cure” for body care, it may not be the best choice for you. Int this workshop, we will focus on how herbs and essential oils can be selected to formulate a personalized line of botanical products that may benefit an individual’s physical body as well as create or enhance a desirable mood.
Discover how plants have traditionally been associated with and used to tap into one’s own courage, confidence, energy, heart-opening abilities, and intimacy. Expore a “Blending Bar” of medicinal herbs and plant-based ingredients, and which are best for you. Craft your chosen ingredients into beneficial products for body and personal space. How and where to source high quality and sustainable ingredients will also be discussed.
Note: A materials fee of $25 to be paid directly to the instructor (not in registration fee) for various products. Participants will create and take home a variety of indivdualized products.
