I'm excited to announce the much anticipated return of my Lotions Class, this time with the addition of an emulsified body scrub! As we head into winter (in the southern hemisphere), it's the perfect time to learn how to make your own exfoliating and moisturising body treats.
Have you ever wondered what goes into making a body lotion or cream? Perhaps you have read the ingredients list on some products and been put off by the unpronounceable names. It doesn’t necessarily mean they are bad for you, but wouldn’t it be great to be able to make your own so you know exactly what went in them? Well, now you can learn how in this fun and informative class.
During this 2.5 hour class, you will be shown how to make three luxurious professional quality body products - body lotion, body scrub and lip balm all from scratch. We will be using quality natural ingredients such as vegetable oils, shea butter and pure plant essential oils. Each person will choose and add their own fragrance to their jar of body lotion. You will also take home a container of fresh body scrub and two natural lip balms. You will receive notes that include the recipes used in the class plus some ideas on how to modify them to your personal preferences.
Some of the topics covered during class include:
- Ingredients used
- Equipment needed
- What is the difference between lotion, cream, butter and balm
- What is the difference between an emulsified scrub and the basic oil scrubs found on many DIY blogs
- Introduction to a selection of key essential oils
- Properties of some important oils, butters and waxes
- Preservatives and antioxidants
This class is designed to introduce you to the delights of being able to make fresh, high quality natural body products at home. You will be amazed at how simple it can be, and excited by the possibilities for customising your own products.

Payment in full will confirm your place in class. We regret that we are unable to give refunds, however you are welcome to send someone else in your place or reschedule your class with at least 7 days’ notice. This allows us to offer the place to someone else, since our classes are often booked out in advance. Subject to availability, if you give less than 7 days’ notice, we may be able to put you on standby to attend a class that has a vacancy until the day before.
If you simply do not attend the class you booked for, you will forfeit the opportunity to reschedule, as we would have prepared your materials and held your place with the expectation that you would attend.
