Did you know that your skin is your biggest organ, and that it absorbs a large portion of what you slather onto it? Unfortunately many skincare products stocked in shops contain dangerous chemicals that can damage not only our skin, but also the cells and organs hugged beneath it. This can lead to all sorts of health conditions, from rashes, premature wrinkling, poor immune and gut functioning, depression, behavioural disorders…the list goes on. You can take control of your health by learning to make your own natural DIY skincare products. It’s easy, fun and cost-effective! During the workshop, we’ll be using 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils to make the products, as well as other natural ingredients. Therapeutic-grade essential oils contain healing properties that can help with a range of skin conditions, from retarding wrinkles, to fighting acne, to soothing eczema. They are potent antioxidants, meaning they protect cells from free radicals, and thus slow down ageing (inside and out). Essential oils are also added for their wonderful aroma, and can help to uplift and ground emotions.
During the workshop, you will learn to make five skincare products (which you will take home):
Honey Lavender Face Wash – 250ml
Anti-Wrinkle Serum – 25ml
Skin Perfecting Body Butter – 120ml
Lemongrass & Ginger Salt Scrub – 250ml
Minty Lip Balm – 5ml
You’ll also learn some of the more nastier chemicals commonly found in skincare products to avoid, as well as the negative impacts these toxins have on you and your family. You’ll learn what essential oils are best for skincare, and which ones can help with physical and emotional health issues. You’ll also learn nutrition and lifestyle tips that can help achieve radiant skin. We’ll also provide you with a recipe booklet to take home, as well as tips on where to get the best price for quality ingredients. This workshop will be educational, informative and empowering, leaving you not only armed with chemical-free skincare products, but also leaving you motivated to make a difference to you and your family’s health and emotional wellbeing.
No pre-shopping or supplies required, just register and show up! The workshop runs for 2.5 hours and is $60 for early-bird registration*, which covers all supplies, containers, oils, recipe booklet, paleo treats, herbal tea & a wealth of invaluable knowledge! This really is a bargain – if you purchased an ‘all-natural’ skincare product from the shops, chances are you would be paying anywhere from $20 – $80 for a small bottle – plus, there are often some questionable ingredients in even supposedly ‘green’ products.
Space is limited in the workshop and will require pre-purchased registration to ensure we have enough room and supplies for everyone.
All welcome! Looking forward to seeing you there!
*Early-bird registration is $60 if you register one-week before the event; the fee then goes up to $70 a week leading up to the event.
