Channel your inner Pomona Sprout and spend an evening learning about the different varieties of magical plants that exist. Or, since we are not at Hogwarts, learn a little about using some plants medicinal purposes, and then make your own herbal infusion, herbal salve, and moisturizing lotion bar.
First we will make an herbal infusion using dried herbs and a carrier oil that is suitable for salves or to use alone as a massage oil. Herbs to use may include Calendula, Arnica, Rosemary, St. John's Wort, Comfrey, Peppermint. Lobelia Leaf, Cayenne Pepper or Ginger Root. Each of these herbs are used for various personal care applications, for instance, Arnica can be used salves for bruises, sprains, stretch marks, and swellings.
Second you'll learn how to use an herbal infusion to make your own salve. While the infusion you make in class won't be ready to use right away, we will have herbal infusions for you to use in your personal salve.
Finally, we'll use some similar ingredients to make a solid lotion stick. This is a solid lotion that gets made in a twist-up tube and can be carried around in a bag or taken on a plane without being classified as a liquid. To use, you simply rub on your skin letting the warmth of your body melt the moisturizing oils. You will have the option to scent your solid lotion with some essential oil blends or phthalate free fragrance oils.
All of this in one very productive class! You will make and take home an herbal infusion, 4 herbal salves, and at least 3 solid lotion sticks. This class is entry level and is open to anyone, no chemistry knowledge required.
It's a lengthy class, so please feel free to bring your own beverage. Get your friends together and have a fun night out making some great products for yourself or for gifts.
Take Home: 1 - 4 ounce jar of infused herbs to use at home, 4 - 1 ounce jars of herbal salves and 3 - 1.75 ounce lotion sticks (in twist up tubes) plus a handout to guide you through making your own infused herbal salves and solid lotions at home.
Age Range: All Ages 13 years old and above - this is a fun class for everyone!
