MAKING ORGANIC BODY BUTTER & BALM, with Alicia Mills

In this class, Alicia Mills will show you how to make a Body Butter or Balm, free of preservatives, and chemicals.
You will be using the finest organic oils: such as Pomegranate, Moringa, Almond, and Avocado. You will also add infused Calendula Flowers into your luscious creation! Cocoa Butter, Shea and Mango Butters are rich in omega 9s and beneficial fatty acids.
This amazing Body Butter can be used for your face, body, hands, feet, and even your scalp!
Alicia enjoyed a nursing career for seven years. She truly loved her work, being able to help people. She found her career abruptly interrupted when her own health became compromised. After contracting a serious infection while caring for patients within the system she highly regarded, she experienced a major shift. This all happened when she became a patient herself. Through her own lengthy process in the medical system, she found no real guidance in getting herself well.
Alicia’s healing crisis brought back memories she had from her childhood growing up in Mexico. Born in a tiny town on a mountainside, she remembered growing up with a strong foundation with a focus on family, love, faith, and remedies made at home. She recalled her beautiful grandmothers and a background rich in tradition, where knowledge was found in plants, and the herbs had something to tell you. She found herself drawn to reconnect with what she had left behind.
As she gradually healed her body, she became very aware that what she put on her skin, could somehow be felt in her body. In her research Alicia discovered a lack of awareness about the toxicity of many ingredients that the cosmetic companies were using. These toxic ingredients cause harm to our bodies as they are able to go deep into our organs, causing endocrine disruption and other damage. For her own health and healing, she had to create the cleanest product possible, with the purest ingredients. She knew her product would be different.
After much research, Alicia was drawn to the Pomegranate. She also discovered why Cleopatra and those in her time were so fond of it! Pomegranate is central in her formulations today.
In the process of her own healing, following her intuition– which she sees as Divinely-inspired, Alicia discovered that she has a talent. With the pomegranate peels and seeds from a family ranch, and the flowers shared by other farmers, thrilled that they could be used and not simply discarded, Alicia followed her intuition and got to work!
This was the beginning of her product. And with great support of some angels, she is pleased to share it with you!
