Selwyn Community Education is based at Selwyn College, Kohimarama, Auckland.
Tutor: Olga Garkavenko
Do things the way your grandmother used to and make your own body products at home. Learn how to make herbal infused oils, salves, lotions and your own skin-soaking preparations using natural oils and waxes. This is especially helpful for those with sensitive skin.
All these products can be made at home on a budget and with love, and make wonderful gifts. Ingredients are easily ordered online for those who wish to continue making their own products. This is a creative, fun class for people of all abilities.
For this six-hour workshop, you will take home a lip balm, healing salve and a body lotion scented with your individual choice of oils plus samples of some other products. Also the recipes for reproducing all these products at home.
What you will learn:
-The processes for making the products
-Handy hints and tips from a professional
-Knowledge of where to source ingredients
-About storage and preservatives - the importance of protecting products from contamination through safe preparation, storage, handling and use of appropriate preservatives. Olga will discuss her professional opinion on plant-based preservatives and will be recommending the use of Germal+ for the preservation of products made in this course (not compulsory use).
Course fee includes all materials.
