This Introduction to Botanical Skincare Production will take us through all the steps involved in creating our very own salves, creams, shampoos, soaps, and a number of other botanical adventures, including herbal teas and botanical cocktails.
We will hand harvest, dry, process, distill, grind, prepare oils and salves from the ground up.
We will be visiting local gardens, working with two different types of stills, hand blending local, organic ingredients to create the right cream for you.
All classes and workshops will be guided in English by a native speaker, though you will have plenty of opportunities to practice your Spanish over the week if you wish to do so.

We will provide you with the knowledge and tools to craft natural and effective skincare products that suit your individual needs. We will cover topics such as harvesting methods, distilling, oil infusion techniques, formulation and preservation.
You will have the opportunity to experiment with a variety of medicinal herbs and botanicals to create your own skincare products. We will discuss the use of the biodynamic lunar calender in the harvesting and processing of medicinal plants.
