Natural Soap + Skin Care with Emily Sims

NATURAL SOAP + SKINCARE WORKSHOP - SUNDAY OCTOBER 23rd - 10am - 3pm - A Plot in Common Farm, Lauriston - $220 per person.

Emily is running an intensive, hands-on workshop on how to produce and enjoy the benefits of natural, wholesome soap and skincare products - free from harsh chemicals, perfumes and toxins. You will learn how to use natural fats like lard and tallow which are often a discarded waste, local olive oil, fair trade coconut oil and cacao butter, pure beeswax and seasonal herbs and flowers from the garden to make a range of nourishing products.

These include:
-a big batch of traditional "cold process" soap
-bubble bath bars
-moisturising body butter
-healing hand and heel salve
-lip balm
-herbal face mask
-grey water safe dishwashing paste

All recipes can be easily recreated at home without any fancy equipment - and are based on ingredients you can source locally and economically.

Cost for the day is $220 per person which includes all materials and take home products, recipe book, morning and afternoon tea, farm style lunch and tour of A Plot in Common Farm, Lauriston. Places strictly limited.
