Join us for a hands-on and in-depth discussion on natural home and body care products that are simple to make! We will make and take natural sunscreen bars, natural shimmer lipstick, vanilla latte sugar scrub, natural all-purpose spray, and air freshener! Everyone will leave with a laminated guide for natural clothes stain removal, as well as an in-depth packet on various homemade care product recipes, like laundry detergent, cold pressed soap, scouring powder, skin oil cleansing methods, lotion/bar/spray deodorants, dry and liquid shampoo recipes, natural makeup (mascara, foundation, eyeshadow and blush), toothpaste, perfume, and much more. All product recipes are natural and use minimal ingredients. Get ready to find out how easy these products can be to incorporate into your daily lives. We hope to empower you and promote a future of wellbeing as you slowly, or quickly, transition to safe, natural, and effective care products!
