New Moon Herbal DIY Beauty Workshop

Saturday, February 22, 2-4 p.m. 

As the snow swirls around my window right now and the winds sigh through the rafters, I have high hopes for Spring, green, and the first flower buds. With this in mind, I have fashioned this workshop to help bring relief to the winter Blahs! For me, creating something beautiful and with intention, that is just for me, is an amazing and special act of self care – a gift that I can give to myself. 

I invite you to share in this special workshop with me where you will have the chance to practice a little self-love, have fun experimenting with flowers, fragrances, and oils, and create something that is wonderful and unique as you are.

  • Prepare a custom bath sachet and facial toner – specific to your needs
  • Create a special scrub – unique for your skin type
  • Learn how to incorporate herbs and flowers into your beauty routine
  • Learn to identify and avoid toxins in common beauty and household products
  • Discover simple beauty rituals to nourish your body, mind, and spirit this spring

It is the time of rebirth and growth and the New Moon is said to be the time to refresh your dreams and desires. In this Workshop, you will learn the importance of non-toxic skincare while you craft a bath sachet and body scrub to celebrate Spring and the New Moon. Enjoy the company of others as you learn the beneficial and beautiful ways to nourish your skin from the inside out. Have fun discovering the properties and benefits of herbs and flowers for your beauty and wellness, set your intentions for Spring, then create your perfect unique blend!  Be ready to get hands on and have fun!

Elderberry: Myth, Magic & Medicine

Saturday, February 8th 3-4 p.m.

It was said that if an Elderberry bush grew by the front door, it was the woman who ruled and protected the home. Most of us have heard the benefits of the Elderberry and this is your chance to grow your very own plant! 

In this interactive and fun workshop, you will have the opportunity to learn some of the folklore associated with this magical flower and berry, as well as the cultural and historical significance. We will also discuss the medicinal uses of the different parts of the plant and learn about some recent studies in using Elderberry to combat the flu. You’ll also be able to sample some delicious goodies made from the berries and flowers.  Each participant will be able to prepare a plant cutting to take home and plant in the spring, perhaps by your own front door!  Workshop is held at the Shop.

Cost is FREE but you need to register in advance – supplies are limited.
