Growing & Making Botanical Skincare and Beauty Products

February 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PST

How do you grow and make your own skincare and beauty products? Liana Blomquist, founder of Brooklyn Rooftop Botanicals, will guide us on the basics:

How to source raw materials

How to grow botanicals

How to harvest

How to process plant materials

She’ll also explain how plants end up as ingredients in products you probably use on a day-to-day basis and translate that into products you can make at home.

Feeling creative and inspired to grow and make beauty products of your own? This is the show for you! Join us Sunday, Feb 13 for an hour-long exploration of how to work with beauty botanicals.
