Natural cosmetics are free of harmful substances like parabens, silicons, petrol-derived substances and another substances that are damaging for our skin, which are found in so many beauty products.
Our natural cosmetics, here at The Country Living School, are only made with natural ingredients that we produce ourselves, like organic beeswax, extra virgen olive oil, sunflower oil and are enriched with the powerful healing benefits of some wild plants. On top of this they are respectful of the environment because they don’t create trash and they are excellent remedies and most of all they are relatively simple to make. Our natural cosmetics can be made in a simple kitchen with the same instruments use for making food.
The natural cosmetics workshop is available throughout the year. During the summer, we collect the flowers that are used to prepare oil salve and alcoholic tinctures, in particular Italian strawflower and St. John’s wort. These salves are the base of the ingredients of our cremes and serve to prevent psoriasis, dermatitis, burns and dry skin.
During the workshop our natural cosmetics we will talk about the properties of the plants that we use, their use and indications.
