Natural Cosmetic-Making Class

This 1 day class teaches how to make:

*Your Own Organic Facial Serum

*Bath Salts & Body Scrubs

*Body Balms & Butters

LEVEL:  Suitable for total beginners to those with some experience

*No previous experience necessary. This class is suitable for complete beginners as well as people who have made some cosmetics before.

*Practitioners of holistic medicine (e.g. herbalists, aromatherapists etc.) and beauty therapists often come to these classes to learn techniques that can help them to improve the quality of products that they make for clients attending their clinics/salons (in some cases you can get CPD points for this too).

*No special equipment is necessary. All recipes demonstrated can be made at home using ordinary kitchen equipment such as pans, bowls and whisks.

*People who make professional natural cosmetic ranges often attend these classes to get hands-on experience and learn about therapeutic benefits of herbs and the various ways that they can be incorporated in to skin and hair-care products. If you want to start to use extracts like these in your professional range of products then Vivienne recommends that you follow this up by joining her series of online specialist classes for professional natural cosmetic-makers. In these she teaches the techniques in-depth and to the standard required for professional cosmetic-making (including legal requirements, the paperwork necessary for including your own herbal extracts in retail products, safety, testing advice etc.).  CLICK HERE to read more about these.

 BOOKING POLICY FOR ALL 1-day CLASSES

(Applies to in-person classes; not applicable to online classes & courses)

  • The cost is for the workshop and includes the cost of materials used, hand-outs provided and herbal products to take home.
  • Places are limited. Numbers of participants are always restricted to ensure quality of teaching (usually a max of 15 participants per class or 10 participants for hands-on classes).
  • These classes are aimed at adults. Please contact me if you are under 18 and want to book a class (some venues do not allow under 18s on the premises).
  • Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Vivienne does not reserve places for people without payment. Payment of the full workshop fee is required in order to book your place.
  • Please book in advance! These classes take lots and lots of preparation and require Vivienne to have hand-outs printed, enough stock ordered in and prepared for every class participant and time to drive and set up at the location of the class. If a class isn’t full far enough in advance then Vivienne will cancel it.

Cancellations, Transfers & Refunds: If a cancellation is received 2 weeks or more before the class then the full fee will be refunded. Refunds are not available for cancellations received 2 weeks or less before the class date. This is because class size is always restricted to ensure quality of teaching and because lots of preparation, high quality stock and time and effort go in to running these classes! It would also mean lots of time messing around on my website re-listing and promoting the place in the class at the last minute and I’m not prepared to do this or to pay someone else to do it for me. Want more info? CLICK HERE to read my policy in full.

MLM reps: are welcome to attend my classes and learn from me but, I hereby make it known that I do NOT tolerate people using my classes to recruit customers or more reps for the pyramid scheme product that they use or sell. [MLM means ‘multi-level marketing’ company: sales reps get paid commission to recruit more customers and new sales reps]. Any MLM rep doing this will be told to leave this class and will not receive a refund. I don’t promote or endorse one brand of products at my classes. Instead I clearly teach people what ingredients actually are, how to use them safely and joyfully, and give a list of reliable suppliers of the highest quality ingredients. I do NOT receive a commission from these suppliers: they are my genuine recommendations based  my years’ of experience as qualified herbalist, international educator and professional natural skincare formulator.

  Vivienne has taught natural cosmetics classes since 2010.

“Fantastic 2 days. An interesting and very inspiring teacher. Loved every minute of it!”
