DIY Natural Health & Beauty Products

$39

with Katie Deabler

Calendar May 3, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

Chemicals are absorbed into the body through the skin. Putting on chemicals may actually be worse than eating them! Toxins that enter through the skin can enter the bloodstream and cause harm before they are filtered by the liver. With all the pollutants in the environment today, it is important that we use personal care products that are made from natural and healthy ingredients. This class will teach you step-by-step how to make your own health & beauty products from safe and natural ingredients. You will make sample products to bring home for yourself and your family.
