Organic beauty – French style

The Green Dove online magazine features’s make your own organic beauty products weekend in the stunning Languedoc region of France.

“There’s one way to find out exactly what’s in your beauty products—make them yourself. Learning holidays website has an exclusive weekend course where natural beauty buffs can learn to make their own organic products, while also catering to their travel bug.

Spend a weekend in a tranquil retreat in the High Languedoc National Park, near Montpellier, France learning to create your own personalized beauty products using all natural, organic, locally-grown ingredients. The aim of the hands-on course is to completely personalize each product to each skin type.

The retreat’s English owner became interested in the healing power of plants following an illness. She now organically grows and dries (in a specially built séchoir) many of the plants, flowers and herbs used to create the beauty products.

Guests spend three nights in an elegantly restored French house set in Laval de Nize, a beautiful secret valley in the Herault region of the Languedoc that boasts France’s cleanest air.

Learn techniques for creating personalized facial scrub, lip balm, creams, toners and more. At the end of the weekend participants take away their recipes so they can continue to make the organic range at home.

The course can be booked exclusively through
