A guide to skin care during winter, where you will be guided to create your own personalised lotion bar and herbal cream.
Presented by the Hedgewitch Kitchen
Saturday 15th December 13:00 – 15:00
Don’t we all feel the hard, cold winters and how they affect so many parts of our body. The skin, the biggest organ of our body is what really gets the short end of the stick in this season. All it really craves is summer breezes, the soft caress of sunny days, less restrictive clothing and the feeling of diving deep into a warm lake. But instead we must deal with icy winds, dry heating, our skin being restricted from breathing by clothing… and let’s not forget Berlin’s hard water which doesn’t help either. These factors affect our skin by drying it out, causing skin to crack, itch, form rashes, sting, and flake. As our biggest organ and the first barrier for our bodies against the outside world, it is essential to treat it with love and affection by feeding it with only the best food possible. That is, self-made organic skin products.
In this workshop we will be making two wonderful products: a lotion bar and herbal cream. To create these products, I will show you how to make an herbal infused oil which is the base of both of these products.
Lotion bars serve to keep dry cracks on feet and hands at bay by allowing oils to sink easily into these dry areas.
Self-made creams are not only easy and exciting to make, but you have the added benefit of knowing exactly what is going into it.
Just like making your own food to feed your body, making your own personal-care products allow you to further care for and nourish your body. There is something magical, healing and extremely satisficing about using a product which you yourself have created. Your skin will thank you for it!
The lotion bar and herbal cream can be used as Christmas gift for others (or even better, yourself).
