What you'll do

We will spent a few hours talking, and putting our hands and hearts on, the simplicity and beauty of all the goodness that nature provides us. We are going to learn how to make some simple, low cost and very effective cosmetics: like balms, massage oils and home sprays. We also are going to learn how to use plants and herbs making our own infusions and extracts. Expect to taste some nice tea in the meanwhile!
These recipes use the very best provided by nature: pure essential oils, vegetable oils and butters. And, since we are in this beautiful, colourful and abundant land called Brazil, we are going to explore some of the best resources available here.

I have a brand of cosmetics, soap and natural food called Um Começo. I do not have a vacation or a thirteenth salary, but I do not have any boss or extra hours either. Besides the Bachelor's Degree and the Degree in Social Sciences by UFRJ, I have in the curriculum courses on Living Food, Permaculture, Agroecology and various experiences in urban gardens, ecovillage and organic and agroecological farms. This path came about 10 years ago and it is the result of what I can present today: Natural Cosmetics; Slow Beauty and Slow Food.

Where you'll be

The workshop will be conducted in my apartment. It's my home/atelier very well located in front of Guanabara Bay. If time and weather permit we shall take a walk in the neighbourhood. Even though we're in a big city, with a good, careful and experienced eyes we can identify some trees, plants and herbs.

Conheço a Flavia de um grupo de saboaria e aromaterapia e queria muito fazer esse curso com ela, pois acho a Flavia uma pessoa incrível, dotada de muito conhecimento, que abrangem vários assuntos. O workshop adentra todo o universo da cosmética natural, passando pelo uso das ervas em tinturas e extratos até a parte da bioquímica dos óleos e seus benefícios terapêuticos. Foi uma tarde muito gostosa, regada a boa conversa e comidinhas deliciosas, feita por ela. Eu super recomendo!

Flavia was very knowledgeable! I am very happy I took up this experience. From extracting and learning about making balms and the types of materials we should use. Simply amazing and everything used is sourced here in Brazil.

I had a really great time at Flávia's workshop! I learned a lot. Flávia was a great host and she did an excellent job leading a bilingual class (Portuguese and English). I highly recommend Flavia's workshop.

Foi uma experiência muito acolhedora e rica de informações, fomos recebidas por deliciosos biscoitinhos vivos desidratados, pastinhas, kombucha, etc. preparados pela Flavia. O curso nos passou as diretrizes básicas para extração de essências e produção de diversos produtos, que nos permitirá criar outros. Foi muito bom também ter um momento de aula prática e no final um momento de relaxamento com escalda pés, mascaras ou exfoliação. Adorei! Super agradecida à Flávia pelo aprendizado e por compartilhar seu conhecimento.
