Where You'll Meet

Herban Lifestyle Studio exudes a thoroughly homey ambiance. Dressers and tables splashed in sunny pastels occupy the front room, where many of the shop's organic spa products are displayed. But the real domestic vibes come from the back of the studio, where a workshop resembles a ludicrously well-stocked kitchen. Shelves teem with jars of organic ingredients such as lavender, cloves, and cocoa butter, ready to be blended into the next crop of small-batch salves, balms, and lotions.


When You'll Meet

The event takes place from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the following dates:

  • Wednesday, February 19
  • Tuesday, February 25
  • Thursday, March 6
