Students learned how to make whipped body butter, peppermint lip balm, luxurious sugar scrub, and holiday cheer room spray using essential oils during the Holiday Make and Take class held Dec. 12 at the Sitka Kitch community rental commercial kitchen.
The class was taught by Nickie Knight, who sells and makes a variety of products that use essential oils. Students took home a jar each of the body butter, sugar scrub and room spray, plus they took home five tubes of lip balm.
Since this class sold out, Nickie had hoped to teach a second class before Christmas, but she didn’t have enough supplies on hand and so won’t be able to schedule a second class until after the holidays. Watch the Sitka Kitch page on Facebook or our online registration page to see if and when a second class is scheduled.
Also, watch our Facebook page and online registration page for the announcement of an upcoming Cooking Around The World class series that will start in late January and will run through April.

Treat yourself, or leave with a variety of gifts to share. Luxurious, organic bath and body products don’t need to be expensive. Learn how to make some of your favorite concoctions in the kitchen using all natural ingredients and 100-percent pure essential oils. Nickie is an essential oil aficionado, who has been an advocate for the removal of toxins in the home for more than a decade.

Students will leave with finished products including — Body Butter, Luxurious Sugar Scrub, Lip Balm, and Holiday Cheer Room Spray.
