~The Secret of the Beehive~In this class, the emphasis is on the basic functioning of the hive and how bees are an intricate and necessary part of our ecosystem. Using bee-products sustainably is a way to support bee-keeping and the maintenance and the equilibrium of the earth’s bio-system.

In this unique seminar, students will discover the extraordinary properties of royal jelly, propolis, pollen, honey and beeswax. These raw materials are not only an untapped source for beauty, good health, and a strong immune system, they are also powerful ingredients to add to cosmetic and medicinal formulation for their anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, re-mineralizing and rejuvenating properties. Students will take home a 6 oz. herbal infused honey, along with thoroughly explained hand-outs, on the way bee products can be properly introduced into formulation.

~Carrier Oils: Gold for Health & Beauty~ In this lecture class, students will discover the world of bio-chemistry behind various precious, healing carrier oils; the different types of fatty acids, the vitamin and omega content of these cold pressed oils, and how they can benefit beauty and health from both within the body and on the skin. Other topics will be covered such as natural SPF (sun protection) in carrier oils, shelf life in relation to their chemical composition and potential comedogenics and allergens. Alice will feature 10 of her top healing, beautifying oils and their properties. Students will take home a 1 oz. customised scented facial oil serum made from organic selected cold pressed oils.
