Learn how to make herbal infused skincare products with “The Sage Apothecary’s” Jo Ballerini. This is a beginners course, no herbal or skincare making experience needed. Dive into natures most useful herbs for the skin, explore how to infuse and use them in multiple skin soothing recipes.
With Jo’s help you will create a personalised face moisturiser or hand lotion using a herbalists arsenal of essential oils and hydrosols. Make it like granny did with an age old recipe to conjure up a “cut, scrape and burn” rapid healing skin salve. And finally, explore natural colour pigments, extracts and other mediums for lip-smackingly good lip balms.
Jo Ballerini holds a diploma in Herbal Studies from Cottage Hill Herbs in Wellington and has continued her herbal education in Boston, MA and Los Angeles, CA. Jo is also General Manager of the skincare company “The Sage Apothecary” here in Tauranga.
