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.

First, it's healthier to make your own.  From hormone-disrupters to carcinogens, the vast majority of body care products out there have toxic ingredients.  Even the term, "natural" on a product doesn't mean it's safe because the use of the word isn't regulated.  In fact, the current regulations don't seem designed to protect us because there are a number of loopholes that allow companies to hide their toxic ingredients under catch-all names, like "fragrance".  By making your own products you'll know exactly what's in it and what's going on and in your body.  Best of all, we'll show you how to use the best ingredients to promote health and explain the uses and benefits of each one.
