Natural beauty workshops from Karen Gilbert
Karen Gilbert offers artisan perfumery courses and beauty workshops in London and the south east of England. Previously, she has worked at Neal’s Yard Remedies in product development and while working for one of the world's largest fragrance companies was part of a team that developed ranges for Jo Malone and Fired Earth. She specialises in naturals over aroma chemicals.
Karen is a trained aromatherapist, make-up artist and cosmetic scientist. She is the author of the Green Guide to Natural Beauty, and an expert not only in the making of unique fragrances and beauty products but also in the theory and history of perfumery.
Karen's courses are unique in that they guide you through the raw materials that go into scents and provide you with an in depth knowledge of the ingredients, the oils and absolutes, that go into the construction of a new fragrance.
Her courses are hands-on, allowing you to create your own products using ingredients and theories employed by leading cosmetics, beauty and perfume makers.
About Karen’s book, the Green Guide to Natural Beauty
“The recipes in this book are a perfect example of ways you can make products yourself without sacrificing any luxuries.I have worked with Karen Gilbert for many years and I am delighted that she has now gathered her wonderful recipes together, to share them with a wider audience. Her recipes are great fun to make, whether you are a complete beginner or simply looking for inspiration. I am very pleased to recommend Karen’s book and I look forward to using the recipes in our workshops at Trill Farm.”
