We're giving another class, this one the last week of April. SALVES AND BALMS It is a basic class to help get the concept of combining oils and butters with beeswax to achieve different thicknesses. We'll discuss different ways of infusing oils with herbs - and you'll infuse oil with calendula, which will be used in all of the product recipes.
There is a kit, which you can choose to purchase along with the class registration for $20 (plus shipping) - or if you have all of the ingredients we'll be using (or are familiar enough to swap things out on your own) you can just take the class for $7.50.
Order and sign up HERE until April 9th. Kits will ship beginning the 10th and should be in homes by the the 20th. The class will be from April 23rd through the 29th.
We will be making "Boo-boo Salve" , Gardeners Healing Salve, Chocomint Lip Balm, and a Bug Be-gone Lotion Bar.
Ingredients of the kit are: Base oil blend which will be used in all projects (apricot kernal, avocado, and jojoba), comfrey infused oil, wheat germ oil, mango butter, cocoa butter, beeswax, emu oil, calendula petals, and essential oils (peppermint, lavender, eucalyptus, tea tree, citronella, geranium, and lemongrass). All containers needed will also be supplied. Although the ingredients won't be pre-measured, the amounts are small, and you will not have a lot left over.
As we did with the incense class, we'll open a Yahoo classroom and post photos, recipes, and instructions. Then we'll be available during the week to talk about the process while you do it.
The incense class was a huge success.
Join us! It's going to be fun.
