Herbs for Natural Beauty

April 15, 2023 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.

The botanical world offers us so much when it comes to radiant skin and natural beauty. In this fun, hands-on class we will explore the world of botanical beauty through the ritual of the home day spa. We will take a holistic approach to natural skincare as we discover ways to incorporate the beneficial qualities of plants into our beauty routine. Our discussion will include how to make facial steams and which herbs are best for different skin types. Participants will prepare and apply their own four-part botanical facial – composed of a softening floral scrub, deep-cleansing mineral masque, aromatic toner and botanical infused cream. Come be inspired to create your own herbal day spa with plants found in the garden!
