January Makerspace Monday Recap and What’s Next in February

Imagine this, a room saturated with the smells of lavender, lemon, peppermint, and the sweet zest of orange. Roller-tubes were filled with grapeseed oil and essential oil to create a stress-free meditation tool. We discovered mediative techniques such as the Bear, Whale, Birthday Cake and Box Breathing. Our night ended, with a little science. Mixing and stirring cocoa powder, bees wax and coconut oil together to make lotion bars!
