Come join in the fun and learn to make four plant-based, herbal bath and body products with natural ingredients including botanicals and essential oils. You'll learn to make healing body and lip balms, body scrubs, and body butters!
This class is taught by Marla Bosworth of Back Porch Soap Company. She will share from her 20 years of formulating plant-based skincare products. You'll learn the essentials of formulating products made in class as well as the healing properties of plant oils, herbs and other botanicals.
These yummy body treatments make wonderful holiday gifts. You'll take home a full-size of all three products made in class and recipes to easily make more at home.
This is also a great class for massage therapists, spa owners, bath and body company owners, and anyone who wants to make incredibly good-for-your-body products. No prior experience necessary.
We will cover the essentials of formulating the products made in class as well as the healing properties of plant oils, herbs and other botanicals. As a class we'll make a batch of luscious body butters - whipped up nice and light! Body butters are wonderful for massages and for dry skin. They are made differently than creams and lotions and do not contain water, instead only skin-loving butters and nutrient-rich plant oils. You'll love the price markup on these products if you make natural skincare to sell. If you don't have a business, you'll love the money saving benefit of making your own bodycare products.
You'll learn to formulate and create your own body scrubs. We will discuss the best packaging options for scrubs and each product we make this evening as well as how to properly label your indie beauty products.
Next, we'll make a batch of body balms and lip balms as we work with healing, infused herbs such as nutrient-packed nettle.
This is a hands-on class. If you have an existing bath and body business, you'll love how these products boast great markups. You can cross-sell these with the rest of your line to your customers.
We'll be making distinctively different formulations, and students will take home the following:
Organic Whipped Body Butter
Organic Body Balm
Organic Luscious Sugar Body Scrub
This class is open to beginner through advanced. Students will receive a class handout that includes instructions, formulas and a valuable list of my favorite places to buy supplies and equipment.
