Body Care Product-Making Workshop
Wednesday, November 7th, 2018 | 6:30-8:15pm
Have you ever wondered what's in your shampoo and if all those ingredients are safe? Have you thought about making your own but don't know where to start?
We're very excited to host this amazing hands-on workshop, taught by Iona Bonamis, Eco-Maternity Consultant and Greenproofer, and founder of A Healthy Beginning! On Wednesday, Nov. 7th, Iona will take us through step-by-step how to make your own natural home and body care products, and you'll get to practice making them yourself! Iona will show you how to combine different natural ingredients to make gentle, yet effective products. All supplies will be provided, and you'll take all products home with you to start using right away.
We'll be making the following five fabulous products, all of which can be used by all ages, including newborns and pregnant and nursing mamas:
Baby-friendly shampoo and body wash
Sleepy time essential oil roll-on blend
All-purpose / toy cleaner
Babies who are pre-crawling and happy to stay in a stroller or in a baby carrier, as well as children ages four and above who can play independently in the play area, are welcome. Please just note that you will need both hands free during the workshop.
If you or your little ones have any allergies (e.g. nut), please let us know when you register and we'll tailor the ingredients to suit your needs.
