What you'll do

You may arrive at Burren Nature Sanctuary any time from 10am and relax in the artisan café until the course starts. We will then move through to the Dandelion workshop and begin the class. We will start by making some fun bath salts. We will then make a facial serum suitable for all skin types. I will give a display of how to make a whipped hand/face cream. There will be herbal tea to drink throughout the class and recipes provided. Everyone will take home a jar of bath salts, a pot of hand cream and a glass drop bottle of face serum
Other things to note

Meet your Host, Mary

Host on Airbnb since 2014
  • Identity verified
I'm co-founder of Burren Nature Sanctuary and have farmer of this organic 50 acre site for the last 30 years. I have been doing workshops to connect people with nature for the last 5 years and have a particular interest in the native herbs of the area. I have studied herbal medicine with Dr Dilis Clare and natural cosmetic making using simple, safe, natural ingredients with organic cosmetic maker Vivienne Campbell. I believe remedies for ill health are abundant in nature if you know where to look for them.
