This sunday I will hold a workshop for making washing agent. Last autumn we had a workshop for producing natural washing agent from chestnuts (see:http://www.couchsurfing.org/group_read.html?gid=25313&post=13726194).
This time we'll try another version made of of cristalsoda,vegetable glycerin,water and essential oils. It is very easy to do, fun, better for the environment in comparison to common washing agents and way cheaper than buying (eco-) washing liquids.
At this meeting we will also have the oppurtunity for experimenting a little and try making peelings and natural cosmetics out of natural ingredients.
If you know any recipes or have ideas,feel very welcome to bring them with you and aswell the needed ingredients.(I will bring some rosewater and yoghurt for example).
As the washing liquid has to rest for a while we are going to watch a short documentary about the industrial production of cosmetics in the meantime. If the weather is nice we can also go for a walk at Augarten which is close by. Maybe we find some flowers (for example dandelions) or plants we want to put into our selfmade cosmetics-Let's be creative! ;-)
What to bring:
- jars to store the cosmetics and washing liquid in (for example marmalade jars)
- ideas and ingredients for selfmade cosmetics (sugar, yoghurt, oliveoil, salt,...)
- essential oils to give the washing agent a smell (otherwise it smells neutral)
- some snacks and drinks (if you want something else than water and tea).
Sunday, 28.4., 2- 6 pm
I will send the adress to all the registered people one day before the meeting.
PS: I will be happy if also men will join! i called it "cosmetics" meeting but you can also put it on your hands or feet. Then they will become soft. ;-)
Looking forward a lot! :-)
Please feel free to share ideas already in the forum!
Hope to see you soon!
