Workshop Outline

The workshop will begin with time spent outside in the herb garden discussing some of the various herbs which are commonly infused into oil – calendula, plantain, comfrey, sage, lavender, rose, thyme.

You will learn about growing, harvesting, drying and infusing these herbs in oil using both hot and cold methods.

You will get to make:

·      a basic herbal salve, using your choice of herbal oils

·      a natural deodorant

I will demonstrate how to make a basic body cream.

You will get to take home, one of each of these products (valued at $50) as well as the recipes for each of these products. These are the recipes that I use for my body creams and natural deodorant rubs.


"I have attended various workshops run by Cathy at Tuahiwi Botanicals. Each one I left with delicious goodies, be it tea I'd made or creams and balms, but also knowledge and notes. Cathy provides such a lovely and homely enviroment to learn in. She is incredibly generous with her knowledge and I've since restocked having made my own goodies at home. "
