In this comprehensive class, food entrepreneur, wellness consultant, birth and postpartum doula, Laena McCarthy, will discuss healing traditions and practices to boost the body's natural resilience while protecting from stress and damage, with a focus on skincare. The class will begin with an overview of what healthy self-care rituals look like, why taking care of your body is important, and how to heal and take care of your skin, body, and cycles using simple herbs and oils.
Then we will make our own herb infused oils together! These oils are great for cleansing, healing age, acne, or sensitivity, and moisturizing. This is a hands-on class, where I will share my recipes and techniques, and everyone will make their own oil to take home. The last 15 minutes of class, I will teach you the Ayerveda self-massage technique, Abyanga; a great self-care ritual incorporating your handmade oil.
Participants will learn about resources for herbs, oils and ingredients, and will take home a guide Laena's created with DIY skincare and the self-massage exercise covered in the class, as well as a greater understanding of how to enhance your daily self care rituals, empowering you to take your physical, emotional, and reproductive health into your own hands.
