Balms and Body Butters 101 with Priya Means Love

  • B. Willow 220 West 27th Street Baltimore, MD, 21211 United States (map)

In this workshop you'll learn the art and science of balm making.  This foundational skill will enable you to make everything from lip balms and treatments to healing herb-infused salves to soft, nourising body butters.  You'll learn how to make herb-infused oils and how to turn them into herbal salves.  And we'll talk about how ratios of ingredients affect texture, the right way to handle butters, and when to add delicate ingredients like essential oils — and we'll discuss vegan options too.  

You'll gain a solid grounding in simple, powerful techniques, skills that will last a lifetime.  This is a great workshop for anyone interested in making holiday gifts for friends and family (from homegrown herbs or foraged conifer boughs, perhaps?).  You'll go home with a jar of body butter with aromatics of your choice as well as the knowledge to make beautiful, clean bodycare that will keep your skin soft and nourished all winter long.

$40 ticket available here.  Workshop guests receive 15% all Priya Means Love products the night of the workshop!
