Skin Deep

- loving herbal care for inner and outer beauty -

with Susanna Raeven & Samuel Perry

July 10 - 12, 2020

Beautiful radiant skin is the natural expression of a well cared for healthy body and a quiet balanced mind. The plants are here to help us amidst a blooming medicinal herb farm. 

Come and join us for a weekend of loving herbal Self care. Learn how to pamper yourself with the gentle support of herbal remedies and luxurious plant lotions and potions. We will stir the caldron and wave magic wands to make nourishing and calming teas, healing balms, plant infused oils, all natural moisturizers, facial steams and scrubs.

Get to know plant allies that soothe and nourish the nervous system, calm the mind and let us rest deeply so we can feel strong and rejuvinated. Learn about herbs and foods that help detox the body and let your skin shine. Hydrate with herb infused waters. Nourish yourself with delicious healthy foods. Stretch into new places with restorative yoga. LOVE your Self and soak your feet in flower petals. 

Most of all, let's come together and have fun with the plants and each other.
