In this class you’ll learn how to make from scratch, wonderful lotions and creams for your face and body. We’ll discuss all necessary ingredients, standard equipment and supplies needed to get started. You’ll learn about the properties and shelf-life of plant oils and natural butters and how and when to use antioxidants and preservatives – a necessary part of making lotions and creams for safety as they always contain water-based ingredients. Note: it is all paraben-free. We will also use and discuss skin nourishing botanical additives. I’ll demonstrate favourite recipes. The batches we make in class will be unscented and uncoloured and you’ll get to add your choice of essential oils. Popular scent combinations include lavender & mint, lemon & rosemary, and geranium, ylang ylang & sweet orange. Once finished scenting, you will package and label your custom product to take home and enjoy.
Making your own lotions, creams or body butters makes it easy to take care of your self.

Why Make Your Own Creams?
Because it feels great! Drying off after a shower and reaching for a jar of the Moisturizing Cream that you made simply feels wonderful and deeply satisfying. “And for much less than if I’d bought it,” you may find yourself saying when you tell friends how easy and fun it is.
