Natural Bodycare Workshop!

Natural Bodycare Workshop!

I am so excited to announce our upcoming workshop- Make Your Own Natural Bodycare Products!  Together we have over 20 years of experience making our own personal care products and are so pleased to offer some of our best recipes to you!

If you've followed this blog, you'll see that I've posted numerous recipes for how to make your own body care products and cosmetics. Why? There's a number of reasons.
