What is the basic ingredients in a body lotion or body cream? Oil, water and wax, since oil and water don’t mix. The wax is used to hold them together. It’s that simple. There are a lot of schools out there that will say they can teach how to make bath and body or natural skin care. Their classes are sub par. So I have a list of schools and website to help you navigate the over saturation on the internet.
- The Natural Body Workshop – Bath and Body 101. The value of the website are the free Formulation Articles on different topics such as how to make a bath bomb, body lotion or body cream.
- Bath Alchemy Lab – It’s a great place to learn how to make soaps. Classes are $89. They have classes for beginner, intermediate and advanced. They have a section for bath and body but it shows – COMING SOON. It’s been saying that for about a year.
- Formula Botanic – Located in the United Kingdom. I took a Chocolate Spa Products course. Exploring the Benefits of Chocolate. I really enjoyed it. The cost was $225.
- Aromatic Studies – I took the Botanical Body Care Products. The coast was $525. Worth every penny. You can take the class in sections so you won’t get overwhelmed by the price. The school offers aromatherapy certifications, French Aromatherapy, Aromas and the Mind and Aromatics and The Skin.
If you live in or near a city that has a class you can take in person then I highly encourage you to try it out. The great part is the instructor is right there to answer any questions you may have. You are surrounded by other people in the class so you are not alone.
