The workshop will commence at 10am but if you live in the area and are able to come along, you have the option of joining us for a cuppa beforehand at 9.30am and also taking part in our monthly swap of homemade items or homegrown produce. Bring along one to five items and you can exchange them for the same number of items. Vegetables and fruit are always popular as are cakes of soap and craft items...basically anything you have made or grown yourself.
Two young mums, Racheal and Rachael, will be presenting the workshop and they will show us how to make a variety of homemade health and beauty products such as vapour rub, sunscreen, lip balm, solid perfume, facial cleanser and shaving cream.
This promises to be a very interesting workshop so do come along if you are able. You can read more about the workshop and where the venue is on the Simple Living Toowoomba website which is where you can also book in. The cost is $5.
However, if you don't live anywhere near our beautiful city and can't attend and yet you would love to experiment with making your own products, Wellness Mama has heaps of good information on her website. Of course there are also lots and lots of sites to check out on this Pinterest page as well.
Rhonda has a recipe for Calendula Salve on her blog and she has step by step instructions on there as well.
Everyone is most welcome to come along to the workshop and I am sure it will be as successful as our last one which was the Rag Rug Workshop.
