You will go home with skincare and healing products you make on the day, all materials supplied.  You will receive a herbal handbook too.

Nalini is specialised in this area and has had her own line of natural products for years, cultivating a lot of the ingredients for them in her own garden. She loves running these delicious workshops and sharing her passion and knowledge – a day filled with wisdom, fun and…well, a little bit of magic of course!

Investment £59 per workshop including all materials for making products, and a wealth of info to take home with you.  Each Workshop has its own theme as reflected below:

“I have participated on a variety of Nalini’s workshops and courses and loved them all! I could go as far as saying they have transformed my outlook on life: The herbal workshops have reconnected me to nature and opened my eyes to the chemicals in commercial products; her yoga and nidra have been the tonic to a fast paced life.  However, Nalini has been much more then a teacher- I would definitely describe her as a life coach for women’s wellness! Thank you Nalini- look forward to another workshop”! (Vicki Fitzpatrick, teacher)

“Thank you for a wonderful morning of dance and yoga nidra.  Every time it is a different experience and I take away new ideas and realisations.  It is so enjoyable and revitalising, and unlike anything else” (Regular Dancemantra attendee)
