Discover the joy of making your own organic skin and body care. Once you learn some basic herbal processing skills, you can easily make your own skin creams, facial scrubs, skin toners, and more. This is an essential skill for those who want high-quality skin and body care without chemical additives, and for those who wish to become more self-reliant by using organic, whole ingredients and making their own skin care products. In the beautiful Esalen gardens, learn how to collect and process herbs, from picking to preservation. Over the weekend, you’ll enjoy a series of herbal skin treatments and have the opportunity to make your own customized set of herbal skin and body care, including skin cream, facial scrub, lip moisturizer, massage oil, and more. After completing the class, you will have a set of organic herbal skin care products to take home, the recipes and know-how to make them again on your own, basic knowledge of how to make a medicinal oil, tincture, and salve, and the ability to make great gifts.
