Make Hand and Body Salve
When she couldn't find low-additive body products for her baby daughter over a decade ago, Arina Soler began concocting her own. Since then she has developed her own skincare line, BellaCreme, and has empowered numerous makers to follow in her footsteps by teaching workshops. In this class, Arina explains how to create healing salves using botanical-infused oils, resulting in affordable and customizable nontoxic skin care products that will soothe parched skin. You'll find the process as relaxing as using the products themselves. Dry, sensitive skin - thirst no more! 
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • Unfiltered beeswax or solid butter of your choice, such as cocoa, shea, kokum, mango
  • Herbal infused oil -- watch Arina's Herbal Infused Body Oil class!

  • Measuring cup
  • Double boiler or two stainless steel pots (one smaller than the other)
  • Glass containers; Arina uses 1.5oz jars, but any small lidded jars will work

Learn how to:
  • Choose ingredients to make an herbal salve
  • Modify the recipe to make different consistencies
  • Bottle your salves
  • Use on your body and hair
