What you'll do

You will make and take away with you $100 worth of organic skincare products. We will begin with an overview of several key herbs and I will then summarise the various herbal extraction methods.

We will each prepare a HERBAL OIL INFUSION to take home. Herbal oils are the medicine our ancestors used to treat all sorts of ailments, a simple and extremely effect way to capture all the incredible healing properties plants have to offer. This oil can be used as a moisturiser, massage oil or as a bath oil, 50ml pump bottle.

We will then make two additional skincare products from herbal oils;

- x4 NELSON SUNKISSED LIP BALMS (made from Calendula oil these are perfect for healing dry lips and make excellent gifts).

- A BODY BUTTER BAR (choose from After-Sun Care bar, Insect Repellant Bar or a Romantic Massage Bar). The body butter bars are an excellent zero-waste option and we will store these in Nelson handmade beeswax pouches.

An incredible morning which exceeded our expectations. Sharyn was very experienced and made sure that we were getting exactly what we wanted out of the experience. make sure you browse her products for sale too / they are packaged perfectly for gifts and there are a number of sizes, perfect to keep in a small clutch or handbag.
