Each workshop lasts an hour and will provide a demonstration on how to make a single product, followed by the chance to make your own version, under the supervision of Vitality’s professional herbalist. All equipment and ingredients are provided, and if you want to make more gifts at home, you can always buy extra ingredients in store.
All workshops cost £10 each and places are limited, so book your place early by visiting Vitality + at 41 Bolton Street, Ramsbottom to buy a ticket.

Learn how to make your own lip balm using a pre-prepared infused oil of Rose petals – together with beeswax and Honey to make a beautiful everyday lip balm – an ideal gift for mum or your favourite aunt?

I first made this cream for the Ramsbottom Chocolate Festival, and it proved such a hit, I’ve decided to let you have the chance to make your own. Using all natural ingredients, this rich, decedent cream combines the soothing powers of rose with the smoothness of cocoa butter.
