ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
Elevate your pet’s health with the purest elements of nature while gaining a deeper understanding of canine-specific botanical formulation.
We want only the best for our fur-buddies, yet caution is paramount when using botanical ingredients on dogs, to ensure their wellbeing and to avoid potential health risks. In this dog-centric workshop, we explore the art and science of botanical formulation tailored for canine sensitivities. You will gain unique skills and knowledge for a more eco-balanced, creative and empowering approach to caring for your pet.
Founders & Co., Wind Street, Swansea SA1 1DY
Approximately 1hr 30min – 2hrs maximum
Absolute beginners, minimum age 16
A DOG-FIRST APPROACH
Dogs’ acute sense of smell and their unique metabolism and anatomy can make them more susceptible to the effects of botanicals. Some oils that are generally considered safe for humans may pose risks and distress to our furry friends, so it is crucial to approach pet formulations with caution.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Magical alchemy! And possibly a touch of canine chaos. In a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, you will learn how to transform plants into sumptuous potions designed to enhance your pet’s health. You will make and take home your botanical creation to start pampering paws right away.
Combining theory and practice in a way that's easy to understand and follow, we will cover:
🐾 Dog-safe formulation basics
🐾 Basic paw anatomy
🐾 How to extract the magical properties of plants through oil infusion
🐾 How to transform plants into nourishing petcare, step-by-step
🐾 Hands-on formulation (making a natural healing paw balm)
DOGS ARE WELCOME!
Our love for dogs is at the heart of this workshop, so naturally we welcome dogs too. However, we do ask that you consider whether your dog is able to endure the workshop without feeling stressed, and if they will feel comfortable around other dogs and people, without causing you and other participants too much distraction.
All materials, ingredients, equipment, step-by-step formulation, packaging and labelling, plus a follow-up recipe and ongoing support, whenever you need it.
3 REASONS TO MAKE YOUR OWN PETCARE
1. Tailored Care: Craft your botanical paw balm to tailor-fit your furry friend's needs, ensuring a personalised blend that addresses specific paw conditions and sensitivities.
2. Pure Ingredients, Happy Paws: By making your own petcare, you control the ingredients, allowing you to choose natural, nourishing elements that promote paw health without exposing your pet to potentially harmful additives found in commercial products.
3. Bonding through Creation: The process of making botanical paw balm becomes a shared experience, deepening the bond between you and your pet. Transforming simple ingredients into a caring balm becomes an act of love, fostering trust and wellbeing.
