Handmade Lotions & Creams

A class for the hobbyist who wants to make handcrafted lotions and creams for family & friends.

Learn to make safe effective lotions & creams using natural ingredients!

This course will teach you how to create your own lotions and creams from scratch.

You'll learn about:

  • 40 oils and butters; their properties & benefits.
  • 4 emulsifying options to suit your needs: extra easy, organic approved, or unprocessed.
  • 24 herbs to infuse into oils, aloe, glycerin, or witch hazel.
  • 34 essential oils & the benefits they bring to your lotions & creams.
  • 17 preservative options {most are natural + a few traditional ones}.
  • 9 basic formulas to use to create your own recipes.

I've also created a downloadable recipe booklet with 15 extra recipes created exclusively for this course.

Recipes include:

  • Raspberry Seed Every Day Lotion
  • MSM & Milk Thistle Lotion for Rosacea
  • Zinc Oxide Cream (Vegan & Beeswax Versions)
  • Cocoa Butter Stretch Mark Cream
  • ACV & Pine Tar Lotion
  • Dandelion & Honey Cream
  • and more!

Also included is a bonus quick guide to waterless creams with formulas and recipe examples, plus a direct way to contact me via the comments section. Just leave a question for me below one of the lessons and videos, and I'll be happy to help you troubleshoot problems, or design your own lotion and cream recipes!
