This hands-on class is for those who want to learn how to make & customize their own lotion and stop buying store-bought, manufactured lotions that are laden with chemicals, toxins and alcohol. Natural lotion is made with natural oils, butters & other skin-nourishing ingredients like aloe vera; 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. You will notice that your skin will become softer & more moisturized over time by switching to natural lotion. We'll cover the following: - The differences between manufactured lotions & natural, homemade ones, including why certain chemicals are added to manufactured lotions & how they are harmful - How to use an online, ingredient checker at ewg.org; this website allows you to check the potential toxicity of ingredients (natural & synthetic) found in personal-care products - The different types of natural lotions and their pros & cons, including how to work with preservatives and make a sunscreen or bug-repellent lotion - The materials needed & where to get them, as well as the lotion recipe and how to adjust it based on your personal preferences - Making & customizing your lotion (what I call water-based lotion) with the ingredients that work best for your skin type (a variety of ingredients are provided like jojoba oil for sensitive skin, rose water for inflamed skin, shea butter for dry/damaged skin, coconut oil for eczema, lavender essential oil for acne-prone skin, etc.) In this class, an informational, ingredient chart is provided to help you choose the right ingredients for your skin-care needs. You'll go home with 8 fl oz of lotion, the ingredient chart and a thorough, detailed instructional handout, including all of the information that we'll cover & a list of online suppliers. Everything is provided in the class, as well as some snacks & tea. This class is available for up to 2 people and lasts 1 hour & 45 minutes.

Contact Lindsay for more information. What makes Lindsay's DIY (Do-It-Yourself) classes unique? Much more goes into making natural, personal-care products than you might think. It's a science! So it is very important that you understand why you are doing something, not just how to do something. Each class begins with discussing the science behind making the product, why certain ingredients are needed & formulating recipes, which is often the hardest part. Then it's time to get hands-on, making the product with me as your guide. My goals are for you to have fun learning something new & making your product, and that you leave the class with a solid, knowledge foundation that you can build upon.
