If you would like to schedule a private class, please email info@duluthfolkschool.com.


Join instructor Lanae Rhoads, as we learn to make your own organic lotion from scratch! Once you learn how to make your own lotion you will never want to use anything else!

Have you ever looked at the label of a lotion bottle and felt completely overwhelmed, wondering what it contained? During this class, you’ll learn the truth about ingredients, and how to read the labels of moisturizers on the market. Then you’ll learn how easy it is to make all natural lotions, how to choose oils for different skin types and the truth about preservatives in skin care. We’ll discuss emulsifiers, humectants, and emollients, as well as standard equipment and supplies needed to get started.

It is fun and interesting to learn about the ingredients, how they work together, and to make lotion that is just right for you. You will be making lotion that is the same quality they are selling a few ounces in the mall for over $80 – this will help you learn to evaluate the quality of ingredients in store bought lotions and soaps as well.
