Working with nature : herbs for self-care

In this intimate workshop you will work with herbalist Harriet Coleman, exploring the importance of self-care and the natural beneficial properties of plants, their folklore and how they can have positive effects both on, and in your body.

Harriet will share her extensive plant knowledge and guide you to intuitively select your own personal plant essences to combine, guiding with her expert advice on how best to work with them.

Create your very own Spring Skin Scrub by utilising foraged herbs, mixing plant-based oils and merging natural ingredients from the earth with a side of alchemy and some added intentions!
This 2.5 hour practical workshop will include:

  • An introduction to herbs and working with them

  • A sensory sampling of individual herbs and oils - learning about their properties, through both herbal history and folklore

  • A chance to set an intention for your product and considering the specific benefits you want from it, before letting the alchemy begin - crafting your unique scrub blend

  • An opportunity to get creative and design your own product name and label

  • A Q&A about herbalism, a chance to discuss your own personal needs and which ingredients are best to look out for. And Harriet will discuss the health benefits of herbs - working together with your everyday rituals.

  • Finishing up with a plant oracle card pulling and exclusive West Apothecary goodie bag to take home

This workshop is ideal those wishing to connect a little more with nature in their self-care routine. Whether you're curious about herbs, switching to natural skincare, wanting to make more of your own products, or just wish to deepen your knowledge and awaken your senses, this workshop will leave your feeling inspired with a new insight into the power of plants.

You will come away with a unique skin loving scrub, and an exclusive goodie bag containing a West Apothecary lip balm and natural soap worth £35.
