with Dabble

Event Category


Event Overview

This hands-on class is for those who want to learn how to make & customize their own lotion and stop buying store-bought, manufactured lotions that are laden with chemicals, toxins and alcohol. Natural lotion is made with natural oils, butters & other skin-nourishing ingredients like aloe vera; there are no chemicals and nothing that will dry out your skin, so you only need to use a small amount to fully moisturize your skin.  You will notice that your skin will become softer & more moisturized over time by switching to natural lotion.

We'll cover the following: 

- the differences between manufactured lotions & natural, homemade ones, including why certain chemicals are added to manufactured lotions & how they are harmful

- how to use an online, ingredient checker at; this website allows you to check the potential toxicity of ingredients (natural & synthetic) found in personal-care products

- the different types of natural lotions and their pros & cons, including how to work with preservatives and make a sunscreen or bug-repellent lotion

- the materials needed & where to get them, as well as the lotion recipe and how to adjust it based on your personal preferences 

- making & customizing your lotion (what I call water-based lotion) with the ingredients that work best for your skin type (e.g. jojoba oil for sensitive skin, coconut milk for dry/damaged skin, lavender essential oil for acne-prone skin)
