Jo Anne Kelly Richards
Craft your own eight-piece set of personalized skincare products from natural, beneficial ingredients—without any chemicals or fillers. Explore the luxurious benefits of handmade skincare formulations that use natural ingredients like rose water, witch hazel, orange blossom water, rose hip seed oil, argan oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, apricot kernel oil, shea butter, coconut oil, and much more.
Each week you will choose from dozens of raw materials to make and take home two natural skin care products, in glass jars and bottles like those you would purchase in a luxury department store – if they offered this level of quality and customization!
In this course we will also explore the use of glycerin, Moroccan red clay, bentonite clay, activated black charcoal, turmeric, dead sea salt, Epsom salt, powdered organic herbs like holy basil, lavender, tulsi, echinacea, and therapeutic grade essential oils of lavender, tea tree, grapefruit, rosemary, frankincense, rose geranium, patchouli, and cedar.
Our focus each week will be on different products:
- Week 1: Renewing Sugar Scrub 4 oz., Detoxifying Bath Salt Soak 4 oz.
- Week 2: Herbal Cleansing Grains 2 oz., Clarifying Herbal Mask 1 oz.
- Week 3: Balancing Toner 2 oz., Nourishing Facial Serum Concentrate 0.5 oz.
- Week 4: Moisturizing hand face and body lotion 4 oz., Healing and Protective Face Cream 1 oz.
Note: An $80 materials fee is payable to the instructor, for detailed handouts, formulas and how-to information, including recipes, safety guidelines, and lists of material suppliers and other resources. (Products made in class have a retail value exceeding $250… if it was available for purchase.)
