Learn how to make lotion, balm and bars

-A A +A

Join Pajarito Environmental Education Center at the Second Bloom Goat Farm in White Rock from 1-3 p.m. Sunday, for a chance to learn how to make lavender lotion, balms and bars.  
Debby Wood, owner of the Second Bloom Farm, will use local beeswax and lavender, as well as local lavender essential oils and her goats’ milk, to demonstrate how she makes lavender lotion balms and bars.
Each participant will take home their own balm and bar after the class. The session will also feature a tour of the farm, where participants will get to meet this year’s crop of  kid goats.  
Second Bloom Farm, established in 1992, is a family-owned and family-run farm. Wood started out with a long-eared Nubian goat named Cecelia and from there her herd grew. Many of her goats now are Nigerian Dwarf, a well-known dairy goat noted for the high butterfat content of its milk, making it excellent for soap making.  
She uses goat milk from her own herd, herbs from both her own farm and local Northern New Mexico growers, and local beeswax to make goat milk soap, balms, lotion bars and more. The farm now includes a large 300-liter copper distiller used to distill many of the herbs that are blended into her products.
This class is offered at a special rate through PEEC ó $16 for members and $20 for non-members. Space is limited and advance registration is required. The class will run from 1-3 p.m. and will be at the farm in White Rock. To register and get directions to the farm, call or visit PEEC at 662-0460, or pay online at www.PajaritoEEC.org.
