Almost 5 years ago I found out I was expecting my first baby and this changed my life forever. I started worrying about what’s in our food, in the products we use on our bodies and in our homes. It became my mission to figure out how to bring this baby in a safer environment.
I am not a scientist nor an expert on the matter. I am just a very concerned mom that has been researching about the toxic chemicals in our lives for the past 5 years. During this process I’ve learned to make many of the products we use in our home. It’s surprisingly how easy most of these products are to make and I want to show you how you can make these for your family too.
I’ll be hosting a series of workshops and in each one I’ll cover different topics and show you how to make different DIY products, so if you want to be notified about upcoming FREE workshops fill out this form:
You might have seen me this past Monday, Feb 6th on 2017 on Good Morning Washington making some DIY products. In this workshop you’ll get a chance to make some of the ones you saw on the show plus a few more. You’ll also get to ask questions and take home with you whatever you make.
I’ll be showing you what ingredients I use for most of the products I make. One jar of cocoa butter, castile soap or vinegar will make many products so you’re not only keeping your family away from questionable chemicals but you’re saving money.
About the Workshop:
I want to show you how to make DIY products but I also want this to be a fun event for moms (and anyone else that wants to come). We all need a little break from our daily lives so leave the kids at home and come join us for some fun (babies are welcome – more details below).
In this first workshop you’ll learn how to make:
- Lip Balm
- Body butter
- Foaming Hand Soap
- Sugar Body Scrub
Remember to sign up for notifications in the form above if you want to know next time I’m having a workshop. Each workshop will cover different topics, products and ingredients.
Whole Foods Market in Friendship Heights – 4420 Willard Ave., Chevy Chase, MD, 20815.
If you’re driving, parking is Friendship Blvd and if you’re taking the metro, you need to take the red line and get off at Friendships Heights. It’s less than a 5 minute walk.
The workshop will be in the eat-in section.
Sunday, February 26th at 3:30pm
We estimate the workshop will take 45 minutes but aim for an hour, just in case.
Are kids allowed?
I am one to take my kids everywhere but making these products while chasing little ones is going to be hard, especially since we need to heat up some of these supplies and put them in containers before they harden. I also want us to get to know each other and as a mom, that’s really hard when you have to watch your kids.
If you can leave your kids at home that’s best but I understand that’s not always possible. If you’re bringing your kids come prepared with fun stuff for them to do so they can keep busy. Also, babies are more than welcome!
Is this workshop really free?
Yes, it’s completely free! All you have to do is RSVP and show up.
Do I need to bring anything?
No! Whole Foods Market is so awesome that they’re providing all the supplies and ingredients we will be using.
Do I have to RSVP?
Yes, this is very important. We need to estimate how many supplies we need and in order to do that we need to know who’s coming. Please RSVP here. If you realize last minute you can’t make it and you’ve already RSVP’d, just send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
How can I make this workshop even more awesome?
Bring a friend, or two, or three!
I want to thank Whole Foods Market for this opportunity to bring our community together and for providing us with all the supplies we will need for this workshop. It is one of the many reasons why I love shopping there!
I am hoping to see you there. If you have any questions about the event email me at email@example.com or leave a comment down below.
