There will be time towards the end of the morning for individual advice on products and skincare and haircare needs. There is also an opportunity to purchase further Weleda products and benefit from generous Weleda customer gifts available through Weleda advisors.
The cost of the workshop includes a Weleda product to the value of £9.95.
