Decorah Public Library, Gabi Masek of Wildcrafted Acupuncture & Herbs, and Pulpit Rock Brewery are teaming up to present an evening of adventurous crafting and craft beer from 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday Dec. 14 at Pulpit Rock (207 College Dr.). This free do-it-yourself bath salts and body oils class is open to the first 15 people to register online at www.decorah.lib.ia.us.
Instructor Gabi says “Is there really anything better than slathering on a luscious body oil post-bath? It happens to be one of my favorite things in the wintertime as my skin becomes drier. I know, I know. Self-care is about more than special bath salts and herbs floating in the tub – BUT there is something really special about setting aside 30 minutes a week to allow yourself to partake in the sacred ritual of bathing and in nourishing your skin with simple herbs and oils.
In this class we’ll talk about some of my favorite carrier oils to use as everyday body oils, how to infuse herbs into oils to create absolutely awesome goodness for your skin, safely mixing essential oils into topical preparations, and how to store your creations.
We’ll also create a lovely blend of herbal bath salts that you’ll be able to recreate at home. If you need some fun DIY ideas to give as gifts this year, we’ll look forward to seeing you in class!”
Gabi Masek is a licensed acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist who has been wildcrafting and herb-crafting for many, many years. She is head honcho at Wildcrafted Acupuncture & Herbs and mixologist extraordinaire at Wai Ke Botanicals.
Register early, as space and supplies are limited. The class is free; participants are responsible for purchasing their own beverages. Call Decorah Public Library at 382-3717 for more information.
