DIY Natural Body Products Workshop by Carol Da Riva
November 4 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
As part of the international community in Bali, we are immersed in a culture that has become aware of the benefits for ourselves and the world of living a healthy lifestyle. Things like clean eating, recycling, and exercise have become more popular than ever before. However, there are many ways we can continue to diminish our negative impacts on the environment, such as finding alternatives for body care products, and their plastic waste.
Surprisingly, the most environmentally damaging objects in our houses can be found in our bathroom cabinet. Some of the products we use on an everyday basis to take care of our bodies can be made of harmful chemicals causing physiological and environmental harm.
This hands-on practical workshop will teach you not only which products to beware of, but also easy recipes for skincare products that use beneficial ingredients (many of which you will find in your garden or kitchen) that can be used instead, all at a fraction of the price of major brands.
Should you decide not to take part in this awesome opportunity, may you consider the benefits to your personal health and the environment when you choose to be more mindful about the beauty products that you purchase. For all you know, the face wash spray you’re using could be polluting the largest organ of our body or the waters of our earth.

Carol has spent many years of her life traveling around the world to find and document the tribes and other communities whose lives are connected to nature and to their ancient traditions. In 2001 she began studying permaculture in Brazil and since then has been able to deepen her experience most impactfully by living it. In 2014 she moved to the eco-village at Green School and now walks the talk of the community’s values and mission, a community of learners striving to live sustainably.
