Combat Post-Christmas Let-Down with a Swap, Sniff and Shop evening at Anarres Natural Health Clinic. Before my unwanted gifts get freecycled or posted on Craig's List, I thought I'd give us an opportunity to swap! Swap anything from stationery to sweaters, from short breads to socks. And if you didn't get what you wanted, or you got a little spending money, you can buy yourself tea lights or incense, or essential oils, or soaps, or custom shampoo or conditioner, or mouthwash, or toothpaste or...!!! I'll also have my newest ingredients out for you to try out and learn about: calamus essential oil, pumpkin seed carrier oil, flax seed oil, rice bran oil, cassia essential oil, Chinese and thuja cedarwood essential oils, ginger grass essential oil, French pink clay, bulk organic glycerine soap by the 100 g, raw (purple!) cacao butter, vanilla pods and roasted cocoa butter from local horizontal traders ChocoSol, magical incenses Psychic, Spirit, Power, Money and Clearance.

Humankind has been developing the art and science of perfumery since the time of the Neanderthal. Learn the basics of the art of perfumery using life giving carrier oils, flower waters and extracts and luxurious essential oils. You'll learn about top, middle and base notes, select a perfume type, and concoct your own entrancing, energizing or therapeutic scent from a selection of dozens of pure essential oils. You'll come away with 10 ml of your custom perfume to keep or give as a gift, plus skills that can serve you for a lifetime for a fraction of the cost of a toxic commercial perfume.

Love to use or give those beautiful clear glycerine soaps with flowers, or toy spiders, photos, or secret messages inside? The vast majority of melt and pour soaps have preservatives and sodium laurel sulphates in them, but Anarres serves up healthful-ness in light amber coloured vegetable glycerine soap made with organically grown oils. You'll learn how to melt, pour, set, cut and package 6 soaps hand made by you. We'll experiment with adding goodies like natural clays for colour, butters such as cocoa and shea for skin benefits and flowers, messages or ornaments for fun. Best of all it's safe, fun and makes 6 great gifts for Valentine's Day... but you'll want to keep one for yourself!

Come and get your customized Mojo Massage Oil and DIY with Tracey TieF, Certified Natural Health Practitioner. You'll learn about slippery, water-based, safe, tasty and healing ingredients, and make your own lube for the cost of half a tube! Get that petroleum off your crotch! PEG is NOT your friend! Neither is propylene glycol, glycerin, colouring, fragrances or any of those unreadable chemical ingredients that appear on the labels of commercial sexual lubricants, if they appear on the label at all. Aside from the harmful ingredients and punishing price tag, the lubes come in non refillable plastic, toxifying our planet a further 575 years after use! Make your own mojo to fit your mood. What a gift for you AND your beloved!

You'll go away with new-found knowledge and expertise, armed with recipes and sample goodies for the mamas and babes in your life.
