Homemade Body Butter Class at Greenfield Rec Department
I had my first of many natural product classes to be held at the Greenfield Community Center this past Wednesday. It was a small but enthusiastic group. We talked about infusing oils in order to capture plant characteristics and creating the perfect scent using essential oils. The body butter is made with all natural and organic ingredients and one of the core ingredients is beeswax. The ladies are holding up a seven pound block of beeswax which we shaved to get enough for a batch of body butter. The group was able to choose from three infused oils and settled on lemon grass infused olive oil and they paired it with the sweet scent of bergamot. Other ingredients included vitamin e and coconut butter. Each person took home their own four ounce container of rich, smooth body butter packed with anti-bacterial properties.
Next week, I'll be returning to create lip balms! To sign up for the class, go to resiliencytraining.net!
