Learn about Skincare Ingredients from a Herbalist

This workshop takes a whole new look at natural and organic skincare ingredients.

If you love learning about plants and their uses in skincare, healing and general goodness for body and soul then this could be just the thing for you!

I love sharing knowledge and I love running workshops that invite people into my apothecary space. And on 3 September I have a one day workshop that is dedicated to taking a deep dive with me into some wonderful ingredients that you can grow and use if you are interested in making your own skincare.

If you've been following me for some time then you'll know that my relationship with Nature runs deep. I don't just see plants and their uses as a herbalist, I see their history, their symbolism, their planetary alignments. I create healing products with them. I cook with them. I connect to their energy and I grow them in my garden.

So, this workshop looks at plants from my perspective and I'd love to share it with you.

We go beyond beauty into the therapeutic benefits of a range of key ingredients, plus some you may not have thought of!

You will learn about a range of botanicals, butters, waxes and oils and gain deeper insights and understanding of the ingredients you are working with as you develop your skincare creations.

The workshop is inspiring, informative and experiential.

This one-day workshop looks at:

We will cover a range of plants and the different extracts that can be made with them.

We'll look at plant oils, essential oils, waxes, tinctures, macerations and infusions.

You will make your own botanically infused oils that you can use in skincare products.

We'll look at how to make a range of natural skincare products including creams and balms.

Doctrine of Signatures - reframing the way we look at plants so we can understand their healing signature.

If you are planning your own natural skincare business then take a look at the Eco Artisan Workshop that we are running the next day. Book for both workshops and save 10%.


The workshop runs from 10.00 – 3.00pm

Lunch and refreshments are provided.

Discounts will be available to attendees for purchases of Archeus plant essences, books and other products.

Everything is Connected

Caring for you and caring for this planet, this workshop places you in direct relationship with nature and cosmos

It would be impossible to ever plumb the depths of Georgina’s knowledge in natural healing and the ways of the universe; attending one of her courses is like diving into a vast and unfathomable ocean.  You will never be the same once you have done a course with Georgina and one course will never be enough.


I've come home feeling quite different. I've always felt an infinity to plants and all that they are, but as the days have passed my memory is showing me all the ways plants have impacted my very being. I'm now becoming an impatient plant alchemist


Georgina has a wealth of knowledge and her passion for nature, plant essences shines through in her teaching. Because of the plant essence workshop I now feel gifted with a different perspective of viewing plants. I enjoyed the way Georgina was so inclusive of everyone in the group which created a feeling of comfort. I feel truly blessed to have taken part in this memorable workshop. I look forward to the next one.
