Herbal Skin Care at COA Center at Flagler Health+ Village at Nocatee
with James Carucci
Herbs have been a fundamental part of cosmetics and skincare for centuries. Leaves and flowers provide pigments, vitamins and minerals that can help soothe skin irritation and reduce inflammation. Roots are astringent and will tighten the skin while oils moisturize and soften the skin. From salves to balms, toners to conditioners, there is a myriad of herbal formulas for skincare needs. In this class, we will review the different types of herbal applications as well as herbs commonly used for skin and hair care. You will have the opportunity to make your own skin or hair remedies for yourself or to give as gifts. Ages 18+ are welcome to attend.
The instructor, James Carucci is a Professor of Biological Sciences at St. Johns River State College in St. Augustine and is a Master Herbalist of over 20 years.
