The benefits of gardening for your mental and physical health are indisputable. Join us for a workshop that goes just a bit further and shows you how to turn your garden bounty into small, well-deserved indulgences. Explore common garden herbs that refresh, relax, invigorate, and intoxicate! Learn how much of an herb, such as lavender, it takes to make a spa experience in your home and how to process it for use in creating a bath fizz, a lavender pillow sachet, and lip balm, all suitable for gifting or a small dose of self-pampering! Participants will gain a basic understanding of what it takes to use garden herbs for everyday skin care.

Instructor Mellenie Runion is the creator of the tiny Del Ray-based skin care company Truly-Life. Mellenie grows herbs and loofahs in her urban garden, just five miles South of The White House. Truly-Life products are sold in small local boutiques as well as Whole Foods Markets.

The workshop will take place outside under our airy tent. Each participant may be seated at his/her own 6 ft. table to ensure safe distancing. All participants will be asked to wear masks to comply with the governor's Forward Virginia guidelines.
