IMPORTANT NOTE: Lotions, Potions & Creams II is an advanced workshop which requires basic knowledge and skill of the lotion craft. We recommend that everyone taking part in the Lotions II must take the Lotions I workshop or must have previously taken such workshop. Fortunately, there is a Lotions I workshop on Friday June 8!

Conquer dry, itchy skin, aging and blemished skin, in new and unique ways in this follow up workshop to the popular Lotions Potions and Creams. The obnoxious fragrances and unreadable ingredients of drug store moisturizing lotions are unneccesary - you can make fabulous formulas with all natural effective ingredients. Make light, finely textured creams and lotions that moisturize and nourish skin without the feeling of been dunked in a tank of grease.

Come learn to make new, customized lotions, for yourself, your family, and your clients. We'll use simple, natural, vegan ingredients like vegetable waxes and flower waters. You'll chose enhancing ingredients like essential oils, cocoa butter, shea butter, argan, tamanu, evening primrose, rosehip and calendula oil to meet individual skin needs.

You'll not only learn how to make new variations of the wholistic aromatherapy classic "basic white lotion" and "basic white cream" from scratch, but also how to protect yourself and your loved ones, no matter how young, from harmful sun rays, while still making and storing essential vitamin D by using natural ingredients like shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut and avocado oils.

You'll preserve with essential oils and grapefruit seed extract instead of harmful ingredients.

We will create:
• variations of Basic White Cream using ingredients like aloe vera gel juice
• Basic White Lotion using variations like sesame and coconut oils
• Eczema and psoriasis healing creams
• Lotions for skin problems of the face
• Lotions for protection from the elements
• Anti-Ageing Creams

Finally, we'll package and label your creations in beautiful cobalt blue jars, metal and glass pump bottles.

You'll come away with the lotions, potions and creams you've made, and skills that can serve you for a lifetime for a fraction of the cost of a quality moisturizer!

This workshop suits everyone who has experience making any lotion or cream recipe - from parents to professionals and people who want to teach about healthy skin care.
