What you'll do

We will spent a few hours talking, and putting our hands and hearts on, the simplicity and beauty of all the goodness that nature provides us. We are going to learn how to make some simple, low cost and very effective cosmetics: like balms, massage oils and home sprays. We also are going to learn how to use plants and herbs making our own infusions and extracts. Expect to taste some nice tea in the meanwhile! These recipes use the very best provided by nature: pure essential oils, vegetable oils and butters. And, since we are in this beautiful, colourful and abundant land called Brazil, we are going to explore some of the best resources available here.
