Welcome back to a new season of MXED GREENS' Medicine Making 101 Workshop Series - Never Too Many Jars!  

Each month from March-Sept (no class in July), you'll get to dive into a different herbal medicine preparation with us. All materials are provided, and you'll get to take home the medicine you make each time. Classes are held the first Thursday of each month from 6-7:30pm.

Class #2: Creams + Lotions

Date: Thursday April 4th

Time: 6-7:30pm

Cost: $10-$30 sliding scale (please review our sliding scale page for where to pay)  For NTMJ classes this year, we are continuing to try to offer an accessible price point. $10 is the average base materials cost.In the absence of a sliding scale, we would charge $20 to cover materials costs and compensate ourselves for the labor of facilitating. When you pay more than $20, you are helping to subsidize the difference of lower-cost tickets, and allow us to continue offering these classes to community!

What you'll learn:

> How to effectively emulsify oils and liquids into a cream

> How to change ratios of ingredients based on what kind of skin care preparation you'd like to make

> Which plants you might choose for creams and lotions and why

> Tips for avoiding mold/spoilage, breaking emulsions, as well as trouble shooting

Cancellation/Refund policy: Please let us know if you need to cancel. We will offer you a refund if someone else fills your spot!
