Herbal Lotions for Dry Winter Skin

Cold wind outside, forced hot air inside – winter in New England can dry you out both coming and going. Dry lips, chapped hands, and cracked skin are uncomfortable and persistent. Commercial moisturizers often contain alcohol and can irritate the very skin they’re supposed to heal. Fortunately, it’s simple enough to make your own herbal skin lotion – once you learn how you’ll never go back!

Comfrey is an excellent skin restorative, moisturizing and renewing.

Learn a skin cream recipe to protect and nourish cold-chapped skin. Lotion recipes are based on the chemistry of creating an emulsion, a blend of oil and water soluble ingredients that requires the right ratios and some patience to achieve properly.

This is a hands-on class, no experience required! We’ll discuss how best to select herbs for lotion making, and we’ll perform a demonstration of the emulsifying process along with some tips for troubleshooting runny products.
