Sense-Care is Self-Care

In our world of increasing distraction and stress, even “self-care” can feel like a burden and expense on our time, resources, and energy.

In this workshop, we’ll enjoy a full-sensory experience and explore sense-based rituals that incorporate our Functional Skin Care products for daily sense-care—and self-care:

Diet for Incredibly Good Skin 

Healthy, radiant skin is a direct reflection of what’s going on inside the body—especially, what is happening between the mouth and the intestines — some call this the digestive tract, we call it the “skintestines”. Whether you are dealing with a specific condition or simply looking to maintain radiance at every age, the entire system will work better when you take into account how the foods you eat on a daily basis affects the skin. In this workshop, you will learn exactly what your skin needs in order to function well along with a binder with printouts of our detailed guidelines for you to take home and continue to add to.

Nature’s Remedies

While Brooklyn Herborium makes herbal-based skin care products for everyday use, there are often times when the skin needs a little more love on the surface when it is in the process of healing from minor ailments such as bug bites, burns, scratches, and scrapes. In this workshop, you will learn traditional methods of crafting herbs into topical products that can be used to provide relief and protection to skin that is damaged, irritated, or in need of extra care.

 Herbalcrafting Calming Spray – Rosemary + Lavender in Witch Hazel
• Herbalcrafting Rash Relief – Calendula + Red Clover infused in raw organic sesame oil
