Learn how to make your own (arm)Pit Paste all-natural deodorant and Lip Balm with simple and effective ingredients you'll find right at home!

bodycare workshop

Body care products often have a long list of ingredients with things we aren't sure what they exactly are and which can be harmful to our bodies. Conventional deodorants, for example, often contain ingredients like aluminum, which are directly absorbed by the skin into the body and may cause various illnesses. Chemical ingredients are however not necessary in order to stay clean. In this workshop you will learn how to make a simple and effective pit paste and lip balm with 100% natural ingredients. This pit paste is no anti-perspirant - as sweating is important for the body - but instead neutralizes odours and absorbs excessive moisture. During the workshop we will discuss the ingredients and their specific characteristics and together we'll make everyone their own batch of pit paste and lip balm. Draw inspiration to look at your body care products with fresh and critical eyes and be curious which other products you can make in your own kitchen.  *please note we will be using beeswax*
