Natural Lotion Making Class
Many store-bought lotions are laden with chemicals and alcohol, which dry out your skin and make you have to use more. However, natural lotion is made with 100% natural oils, butters & other skin-nourishing ingredients; there are no chemicals and nothing that will dry out your skin, so you only need to use a small amount to fully moisturize your skin. In this class, informational charts are provided so that you can customize your lotion with the ingredients that work best for your skin type (e.g. jojoba oil for sensitive skin, goat's milk for dry/damaged skin, tea tree essential oil for acne-prone skin). We'll discuss the different types of lotions; the materials and ingredients needed and where to get them; how to adjust recipes; the benefits of various ingredients so you can choose what is best for your skin; and then you'll make a creamy lotion similar in consistency to store-bought lotions but with no harmful ingredients. You'll go home with about 8 fl oz of lotion and a thorough, detailed instructional handout, including recipes, ingredients, materials/equipment & suppliers. Everything is provided in the class, as well as some snacks & tea. This class lasts about 1.5 hours & is available for up to 2 people. Beeswax lip balm making can be added for $15/person.

Hi, my name is Lindsay. I am the former owner of Blue Dot Organics based out of San Francisco. I taught a variety of large-group classes in the making of soap, candles, lotion, lip balm and various other body and household natural products. I closed this business in the fall of 2014 and traveled abroad with my husband. We returned to Pacifica, California in the fall of 2015 and I began teaching again, but on a smaller scale until May of 2016. My husband was offered a job in Long Beach; so since July of 2016, I have been offering private classes, as well as semi-private classes on my online calendar, for up to 2 people per class on Ocean Blvd. You can enjoy an informative, fun class tailored to you in a relaxed atmosphere. My Soap Making & Teaching Background: I have been making & learning about natural, body-care products since 2012, when I took my first soap-making class with my sister-in-law in Quincy, Massachusetts. It was so fun that I immediately moved on to lotion, candles, bath bombs & more! I had been a teacher long before learning how to make natural products though, so when I moved to San Francisco in 2013, I decided to mesh my 2 specialty areas and open Blue Dot Organics. I have taught in various capacities ever since I graduated with a Bachelor's in Education in 2006, but I prefer the small-group setting for a more personal experience and so you can get the most out of the class! I hope to meet you soon!
