The beautifying properties of plant-derived oils have been used for thousands of years to naturally protect our skin, helping to keep it nourished, supple and healthy. Extracted from nuts, seeds and fruits there are a great many to choose from, all with their own unique properties – the key is choosing the correct oils for your skin type!


    This course is designed for you to discover what makes each oil special and how these differences determine their effect. Learn how organic, cold pressed seed and plant oils offer great compatibility with our skin and select the best oils for your needs.


    Discover how these oils can then be transformed into beautiful balms. No preservatives, fillers or synthetic ingredients… just a powerful blend of organic plant-derived oils, butters, beeswax and essential oils.
