This workshop teaches the importance and process of creating skincare from nature, with the use of organic ingredients to heal or rejuvenate your skin, straight from the garden! GOAL: All workshop attendees will be given the guidance and supplies necessary to forage appropriate ingredients in the garden, and learn about plant healing properties that are specific to their skin types. Everyone will learn how to create personalized products that they will concoct in the workshop with guidance. After the workshop, attendees will have more knowledge on where to source natural ingredients, and how to create a daily routine that includes natural beauty products. WORKSHOP STRUCTURE: We will meet at a home-based garden, local to San Diego, known for organic herbs and plants. We will chat about basic plant properties and remedies. We will then forage ingredients in provided baskets for personalized products. Once the garden fresh ingredients are gathered, we will head over to the work table for some snacks, water, and tea to discuss proper ways to extract the plant properties. I will demonstrate these proper methods and then we will concoct our products together. You will end with a wonderful all-natural product to take home, use, and watch as your skin begins to heal- let’s get glowing!
I founded Organically Driven, a humanitarian company, to promote the use of nature in everyday living, with a specific focus on city dwellers. OD hosts healthy workshops that people can bring back home to recreate. OD stresses the importance of natural products to incorporate into a routine and daily lifestyle- not just a DIY weekend craft or hobby. -- My interest in skin care began as a beauty consultant for Clinique while earning my Economics degree at SDSU. I spent thousands of dollars on products that never worked to cure my troubled skin. After I graduated, I decided to forget about econ analysis, and pursue a diploma in 'Organic Skincare Formulation' instead. Both my skin and my bank account got healthier :) I hope you benefit from this knowledge also!
