Seaweed Spa Class

Seaweed Spa Class

Natural Cosmetics with Healing Properties

Make your own seaweed skincare and haircare (natural cosmetics).


Seaweed is the name given to species of marine plants and algae that grow in oceans, rivers, lakes and other bodies of water. It ranges greatly in size, colour, and texture, and can even grow in such large ‘forests’ that they overtake entire regions of beaches and shorelines.


It is perhaps the most beneficial and abundantly available natural ingredient for skincare on the planet. According to research, some seaweed contains 10 to 100 times more vitamins and minerals per unit of dry mass than land based plants or animal derived foods


Seaweed has long been used in beauty treatments, from the age-old Irish tradition of bathing in seaweed, to the modern day seaweed spa body wraps. With over 30,000 known species of seaweed in the ocean, this powerful plant is loaded with vitamins, minerals, amino acids and proteins.


Luckily you do not need to live at the coast and collect fresh seaweed in order to enjoy its benefits for the skin and hair. Beautiful natural cosmetics and treatments can easily be made at home using packets of edible dried seaweeds that you can buy from health shops and suppliers. Vivienne will share her recommended suppliers of ingredients during this class


Why make your own seaweed products?


There are many benefits of making your own Seaweed products:


  • By making your own you know that the ingredients used were to your satisfaction – pure and natural!
  • The powerful ingredients found in seaweed can do miracles for your skin and hair
  • There is the satisfaction that comes with using something, or giving a gift of something, that you made entirely on your own!


Course Details


Make and try Seaweed Skincare & Haircare (natural cosmetics) Treatments


This 1 day class teaches some of the skin & hair-care benefits of seaweed (inside & out!). The ingredients used are natural, organic, and kind to the environment.


Learn about the properties of seaweeds: vitamins, minerals and other beneficial compounds. Make different DIY extracts to capture these.


We will make a range of natural cosmetics and skincare & haircare treatments from them such as:

  • DIY seaweed shower gel and face masks
  • Nourishing hair & scalp tonic
  • Bath products
  • Masks and mousses
  • Nourishing facial serums and creams


We will relax while we experience these during our Spa Session. And you’ll also get to bring home samples of all the products that we make on the day.
