DIY Natural Lotions and Balms Class  


Spring quarter class:

Saturday, April 7, 2018
1:00 - 3:00 pm

Class fee: $55

Does your skin need a little extra care in the winter, or perhaps all year round?

Come learn how to make moisturizers with all natural ingredients, including beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil. This class is for you whether you're a DIY newbie or have already dipped a toe into making your own body products. Once you start, you'll never go back to store-bought lotion! In class we'll make a balm, lotion bar, and a luxurious hand lotion to take home, along with a packet of recipes and tips.

Guest Teaching Artist:


Lauren Morse is a backyard homesteader living in Milwaukie, OR. She spent the past three years managing the Portland Homestead Supply Co., helping students and customers alike embark on homesteading projects. Her experience with lotion making began as a way to relieve her sensitive-skinned hands from the rough work of farming. She loves experimenting in the kitchen and infusing creativity into all of her homemade products. And she has a secret to share: making your own body products is not only cheaper than buying them at the store, you can also make them better suited to your own skin-care needs!
