MVWI - August Meeting - Homemade Beauty
Time & Location
About the Event
As you know, our August meeting is usually a social but we've pulled together some last-minute plans and we are excited to welcome a guest speaker, Deana from Purodem. Purodem specialise in using pure, natural and organic aromatherapy essential oils and raw ingredients to help create bespoke prescription skincare, aromatherapy remedies and run a variety of courses.
You can join us to hear all about natural beauty products and watch the demo or you can join in! If you'd like to make along with us, here are the ingredients you will need.
Cupboard supplies needed (all easily obtained from local shops):
Organic is best where possible but not essential.
Porridge Oats, small oats and preferably organic.
Natural full fat yoghurt, probiotic or vegan alternative [ this is optional]
Liquid glycerine used for baking [ e.g. Dr Oetker]
Natural almond nuts [not salted!]
Brown loose sugar [demerara]
Rice bran oil
Avocado Oil or Olive Oil.
Mini Electric Chopper [ one used for herbs etc, I demo with a Kenwood mini chopper - don't panic if you don't have one. A blender or something to bash the ingredients with would work too!)
Tea strainer or small fine sieve.
Small bowls x 3
Small jug x 1
Clean small jam jars or other clean containers x 3
If you can't get your hands on everything, don't worry. We'll work with what we have!
