Make Your Own Floral Self-Care Kit

In this 2 hour workshop, hosted by Elsie of Divina Botanica, you will make a herbal tea blend and floral face mask to enhance your wellbeing and make you feel good!

A workshop for the crafty ones amongst us, you will get stuck straight into learning all about herbal health and the properties of plants. Participants will be shown how to make their own herbal tea blend and face mask from organic, natural ingredients.

Engage your senses, wrap yourself in self-love, and create a gorgeous self-care kit for you to use at home.

All participants will also receive a packet of Calendula or Chamomile seeds to take home so that they can grow their own herbs to use in the future. Participants are encouraged to "flower it forward!" and share seeds at harvest time to give to friends and family.

This event is part of the Every Body's Story 10-part series running from March to July in Bristol. Each event explores ways we can better connect to, appreciate, and celebrate our beautiful bodies.
