10am – 4pm
In this workshop you will learn how to produce a range of professional quality beauty/spa products tailored to the season using variety of botanical material inspired by the Woodlands & Gardens at Harewood.
We will focus eco- conscious sourcing, production & packaging methods practical products tailored to you as an individual taking into account age, hair & skin type. We will also explore the use of scent to create mood & how they have been traditionally incorporated into products & what purpose they serve.
Expect to take home 7-10 items which may include: body & lip butters, body/hand scrubs, hand/foot cream, soaps (hair or body), balms & salves, bath salts, bath teas, massage oil & face masks. The majority of products are vegan but we will be using beeswax from Rachel’s happy Woodland bees in some of the balms.
There is also a Cold Process Soap Making course on Monday Dec 18th – a perfect complement to this course.
Rachel cares passionately about using environmentally sound skin care products & makes all her own cosmetics. Her soap recipes incorporate luxurious essential oils, oils & butters alongside botanical materials tailored to skin types, purpose & age.
