The workshop will be held via the Zoom video conference platform. Throughout the online class you will learn the benefits of the formulas for bases using Shea butter and coconut oil, the fundamentals of aromatherapy, and take away your own handmade natural body butter, lotions, and scrubs of your choice.
The sessions aim to give you the confidence to go off an experiment with home-made recipes and with your new creative skill you will never be short of some self-care on a rainy afternoon again.

Additional items needed;
These workshops have been held IRL at Soho House, The Wing, and in collaboration with Adidas. We have also been featured on Channel 4 and BBC Business Live.
We will start with a short introduction and expand on the Yoruba principles of Asé, slow living and my personal take on self-care, and the healing powers of Shea butter, described by US Vogue as 'Africa's Best Kept Beauty Secret'.
Using the illustrated essential oil card we will walk you through the basic principles of aromatherapy. We will explain how we are going to make our products, our favorite books on the subject, and field any questions.
The Making will begin. During this time we will all chat about our choices, what we will use the product for, and the benefits of each individual choice. (20 mins)
Q and A: We will answer any questions about skin concerns, how to scale a business from your kitchen!
Don't worry if you have never made your own cosmetics by hand before or if you don't know anything about Aromatherapy. That's what this experience is for! You will see how simple the basics are and learn a skill that will be with you for life that you can build on as you choose.
We take influences from Liha’s English aromatherapist mother and both of our Yoruba heritage, the creations that we make are natural, organic, handmade, multipurpose, and unique.
A key part of our philosophy is slow living, self-care, and trying to be supportive of those aspiring to a zero-waste lifestyle. A big part of that is showing people how to use what they already have at home and how to refill our old and half-empty bottles and jars.

This workshop was great- Abi made it super easy to follow her instructions and taught us so much about essential oils and the mindset of Asé which I’ve been channelling as I cream my baby with his new Shea body butter a la Liha! His baby acne has completely cleared up since using the Shea butter I purchased as part of the kit too- LOVE!!
Really beautiful workshop, was so nice to have a VC with someone so beautifully ego-less and lovely xx I cherish what I learnt
I attended the online kitchen workshop and I loved it. We learned about being slow and intentional with our beauty routine, the magic of Shea butter (aka women’s gold) and essential oils. Highly recommend! Thanks LIHA xXx
