Past Event: Herbal Skincare and Tea-Making Workshop

  • Bethnal Green Nature Reserve Middleton Street London, England, E2 9RR United Kingdom

We gained hands on experience making our own healthy, inexpensive, and effective herbal body balm, using fresh herbs from the Phytology medicine garden. 

Taught by Molly Maitland, we explored the properties of different carrier oils, learned the different techniques of infusing herbs into oils, and made an all-natural body balm to take away with us on the day. 

Phytology is an artist and community led project exploring the use, value, resilience, and function of wildness within urban ecosystems, launching at Bethnal Green Nature Reserve in 2014.
