DIY Herbal Body Care: The Complete Herbal Facial
Join Jamie Samowitz, educator and herbalist, for a dive into the sensory world of herbal body care products. Working with clay, aromatic herbs, and essential oils, we will craft nourishing and soothing skin care products that are tailored to our body's own needs. As a class we will make an herbal facial steam, a facial exfoliant, a clay mask, and an astringent toner, and will sample and go home with a recipe for a homemade face cream. We will discover the joy of working with fragrant and healing herbs and of giving ourselves the experience of a luxurious spa right in our own homes. Bring a small towel--we're going to be applying the products during the workshop! Instructor: Jamie Samowitz is Director of Youth Outreach Education and Co-Director of Roots Rising at Berkshire Botanical Garden. She is a home herbalist and currently in training as a clinical herbalist through David Winston's Center for Herbal Studies. She enjoys foraging for wild food and medicine and sharing her love of the natural world with her students and community.
