Workshop Details

Discover how to make your own high-quality organic skin care, individually customized to best match your needs and preferences. Using fresh ingredients from the beautiful Esalen gardens, learn how to infuse the healing properties of herbs into therapeutic oils, skin creams, lip balm, facial toners, and more. This is an essential skill for those who want pure, all-natural skin and body care without chemical additives, and for those who wish to become more self-reliant by using organic, whole ingredients to make their own. Indulge in a series of herbal skin treatments, made fresh from the garden, and take home your own customized set of herbal skin and body care, including a nourishing and reparative face cream, body cream, facial scrub, and tinted lip moisturizer. 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, and the ability to make unique, customized gifts for friends and family.
