Body Scrub Workshop by Workshop 17

MainPlaceMall USJ had a Craft Fair happening just this weekend. I loved that apart from the craft, there were stationaries and plenty of workshops to join in. I missed the Stationery Buffet though.  *cry glitter* Haih, if only I lived in USJ. There were a lot of interesting stalls. I even had a henna tattoo drawn on my hand.

I signed up for the Body Scrub Class hosted by Workshop 17. Although my mom was like skeptic and remarked ,” benda tu pun nak belajar?” – I deafened my ears and went for it anyway. Moms like that. Lepas tu dia nak jugak. Ha ha ha.

I used Google Maps to navigate my way to Mainplace Mall and it was only a 20 min drive from my moms house. The kids? Left them with the dad.

Our instructor for the hour was called Yen. She was so pretty and gentle. Always encouraging us to be creative. She even gave us extra tips on how to further make our scrubs become prettier.

We each received a goodie bag. Inside, there were 2 empty jars for us to put our scrubs in, a wooden spatula and cute, instruction cards showing us how to make these things. I was so pleased.

I signed up for the class online at a fee of RM 79/pax. This is after Craft Affair announced it on their IG page. As usual, I was anxious for having to go alone. And meet new people. Although I also have that part of me who wants to hang out with new friends. New butterflies, maybe? hihi. So the Introvert needs to be at least an Ambivert during these events.

We have the option of creating our scrubs from either essential oils or food meaning oatmeals, coffee, cocoa and green tea. The base is sugar. Be it brown or white sugar. Then we have food gel for colours with various ‘toppings’ such as rose petals and buds. I thought the table was colourful.

These are mine.

1 : Chocolate + vanilla + rose water

( to wind down and relax)

2 : Lemon + grapefruit + bergamot

( to freshen and revitalize)

Yen did caution us to keep the jars in a cool area. But not the fridge. And definitely not under the sun or in the heat of a closed room.

I came home from the class learning something new. I think it is something that I could do at home and teach others.  I look forward to attend classes similar like this in the future like making lip balms and such. Perhaps later, I will gain my wings to become a better Butterfly Blogger and then, I’d have enough experience and courage to attend next years Butterfly party. InsyaAllah.
