Basic Emulsions 101: Lotions, Creams and Gels

July 27, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

Morning Workshop: Creams and Lotions
Afternoon Workshop: Gels

Learn the chemistry behind making creams, gels, and lotions with natural essential oils. Witness and learn how aromatherapists dilute their aroma blends into pure carrier oils (such as olive, Jojoba, sunflower and others including alcohol). Whether for medicinal or cosmetic benefits, these topicals are convenient and effective bases for aroma-therapeutic products, offering smooth penetration of the epidermis, meaning your skin will be left soft to the touch, not oily! You will be introduced to an array of natural raw materials and waxes, learn about preservation systems, hygiene, hydrosols, and the basic mechanisms of making emulsions. You will leave with newfound holistic wisdom and your very own custom cream and gel!

Each of the two classes can be purchased separately for $75 each with a $18 material fee due at workshop.
