POTIONS OF NATURE | instructor: MATEJA PODKRAJŠEK

  1. SUMMER BALMS AND BODY BUTTERS
    In this workshop, we will learn how to make herbal oil extracts, 100 % natural herbal balms and body butter. We will learn about the characteristics and the use of various skin-care butters, oils, herbs, essential oils and other cosmetic ingredients used for beauty and health purposes already by our grandmothers. We will first make aromatic body butter for sun bathing and tanning, made of cocoa butter, nuts and oils with natural sun protection factor. We will then proceed to make a balm from camomile and St. John’s Wort which has nutritious and soothing effects for irritated skin after sunbathing.
    Each participant gets a balm (50 ml), body butter (50 ml) and a booklet with recipes and instructions.
    The participants can bring their own packaging (for example an empty cream jar)
  2. NATURAL DEODORANTS
    You will learn how to make a “green” deodorant and toothpaste. We will get to know with appropriate oils and butters, sodium bicarbonate, herbs, clay, essential oils and other ingredients. We will first make a stick deodorant which has no detrimental effects and actually works! We will also learn to make a spray deodorant.
    Each participant gets a deodorant (50 ml) and a booklet with recipes and instructions.
