Herbal cosmetics

After losing her brother to cancer, Joana has decided to create a conscious project for people who care about their health and the health of the planet. She has spent years of her life trying to raise awareness of her family and close friends in how to live a greener and healthier life. She has learnt that people will only change and become conscious when they are ready for it and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it. So she decided to share this knowledge only with those who were conscious to listen. This was how Sente Senas Naturais was born, and this sustainable journey into a greener and healthier future turned out to be much smoother because she found the right listeners.
In one of the workshops Joana is going to talk about the dangerous of chemical based products on a daily basis and how can we substitute most of the hygiene and beauty products for handmade and natural based cosmetics, as well as the dangerous of chemical deodorants and formulation of a natural creamy deodorant.

In a second one she will give us a lesson on regenerative plants to use on the skin and herbal teas to treat different ailments and issues. She’ll also talk about the importance of organic ingredients in our skincare and also diet, and the dangerous of fluoride and other harmful ingredients on commercial toothpaste, and how to substitute them with natural and plant based ingredients.
Her third workshop will be on the use of Portuguese Plants and how to elaborate oil extractions to use in the skin. It will be a lesson on plant macerations and tinctures and how to use them.
Everyone is welcome to a sample of the products done during the workshops.
