Do you know that Newfoundland can look good on you? In the most unsuspecting places our island grows mighty herbs that can be used on the skin with remarkable results. Want to know more? SeaBerry has partner with certified herbalist Felicity Roberts to bring you this one of a kind workshop on how to make wildcrafted skincare straight from the Rock.
Come for a walk with us on the hills of Signal Hill and learn how to identify some of the local plants that grow wild in Newfoundland. Hear Felicity talk about their tales, properties and traditional medicinal uses. In the afternoon, we’ll be at the SeaBerry’s Lab where we’ll create luscious skincare with those same plants.
All products we will be making are vegan!
• How to identify burdock, plantain, raspberry, rose and yarrow in the wild
• The properties of these plants and how to use their different parts for skincare
