Morcote, an enchanting village that has been awarded the title of "most beautiful village in Switzerland", is the perfect setting to talk about sustainable cosmetics.
We will start with a wonderful walk to discover this enchanting place: its anecdotes, the stories of the people who live there every day, the small artisans, the farmers, the beekeepers...
We will visit some of them, who will give us some of Nature's elements (such as lavender, perfect for essential oils, or beeswax, an excellent base for balms, etc...), which we will then use to prepare natural cosmetics.
Our destination will be an enchanting secret garden hidden in the labyrinth of small streets in the historic centre of Morcote. Here we will be greeted by a small tasting of local organic products and talk to an expert, who will explain the properties of wild herbs and the possibility of reusing natural waste for the production of cosmetics.
In the age of disposability and hectic life, we have put aside and somewhat forgotten the ancient wisdom of our ancestors who produced with their own hands so much of what we are now used to buying. In our haste, we often buy beauty products that are harmful to our health and the environment, at the risk of spreading preservatives, dyes or solvents of chemical origin on ourselves.
This event is an invitation to women and those who feel like it, to the slowness necessary to savour the lushness of the Region that hosts us and offers us elements that we will transform into pearls of pure well-being.
