We will visit my cosmetic laboratory and we will be doing for 2 hours and half handmade cosmetics with the traditional Bulgarian Rose and Lavender essential oils. You will make your own Rose/ Lavender body balm and Rose/ Lavender lip balm. While crafting we will talk about how to use essential and carrier oils, what properties they possess, how to make infusions with herbs and other interesting topics related to cosmetics. After we have made our first product we will share a cup of tea made from rose buds grown in the famous Valley of Roses and enjoy delicious handmade chocolate flavored with the same roses. I will give you a presentation about the rose oil, how and where it's produced, and what's so special about it. You will be able to smell 3 types of lavender- Bulgarian, French and English and tell the differences between them! In the end you will go home with a small bottle of 100% pure Bulgarian Lavender essential oil, dry rose buds from the Valley of Roses and your own hand made products!
