Detoxing your Home for a “greener” lifestyle will be presented by holistic health consultant and Westfield resident Heather McMahill. She will discuss ways to eliminate chemicals from the home and return to a more natural day-to-day life.

In this fun, hands-on workshop, participants will make a chemical-free home care product to take home with them. McMahill is both an essential oils enthusiast and a self-proclaimed “mom on a mission” to educate people on practical ways to keep their families and homes as healthy as possible.

In addition to working with Young Living Essential Oils, Heather is trained in a variety of health and wellness practices, including yoga and mindfulness and reiki.
