Healthy Skin, Healthy Hair, the Wise Woman Way
A Workshop with author & herbalist Susun Weed
When we think of our biome, we think of our gut, but there is a biome on our skin (and scalp) too. Most skin and hair-care products, even so-called natural ones, can be injurious to this biome, leading to disruptions like eczema, dandruff, rashes, and hair loss. Green blessings, the simple herbs of our byways, are here to help us restore our healthy skin biome so we can enjoy radiantly healthy hair and skin, the Wise Woman Way.

Cost: $25 if registered and prepaid by Mar. 22nd; $30 if registering after the 22nd.
