Berkshire Botanical Garden invites you to treat yourself to a beautiful afternoon of fun inspired by the Equinox — relax, meet new friends and discover the world of herbal skin care. The group will go through a plant-based facial routine after creating products that you will take with you to continue your spa day in the comfort of your own home.

The day will start with creating an aromatherapy candle, bath salt, salve, and infused oil that you will take home with you after the group has a chance to cleanse, exfoliate, steam, mask/treat, moisturize, and massage faces step by step together, using everyday ingredients infused with herbs and essential oils, while enjoying herbal tea and infused detox water.

Nicole Irene holds a master’s degree in fine art, two herbal certifications from Dandelion Herbal Center and Sage Mountain Botanical Sanctuary, and is a Reiki-trained ordained minister. Nicole has a love for local farms and sustainable, organic agriculture and enjoys cooking nourishing meals and experimenting with her herbal preparations at her home in Stockbridge.

“To maximize every step,” she says, “please arrive with a freshly washed face with no makeup products. No matter your level of knowledge or experience, this workshop welcomes all enthusiasts who share a passion for the power of plants.”

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
