I am very excited to announce that I will be holding my first two day aromatics retreat and workshop here in Sedona, Arizona in September 2017! It will probably come as no surprise to my followers on Instagram and Facebook that I will finally be sharing my aromatic garden in person, after all the inspiring photos I have been posting over the past year. However, here are the details, if you want to attend!
Two Day Aromatics Workshop in Sedona
The workshop is located at the Sedona Aromatherapie studio and garden, which is situated on my one acre original homestead property, just a five minute drive out of Sedona city limits, but a world away from the ever-expanding tourism of the area.
The aromatics retreat and workshop will include a live distillation of plant material, including collection of the plant material from the property, hands-on experience in identifying various aromatic plants in the garden, recording that information and relating it to the essential oil or hydrosol, and a lesson (or two) in aromatic blending, based on information I have learned over the years from real-life projects. You will also create a couple of aromatic products in the Sedona Aromatherapie studio from my personal collection of aromatic oils and materials.
I do not believe in large class sizes for learning and prefer one-on-one learning wherever possible. For this reason, among other practical reasons, the aromatics retreat and class will be limited to a maximum of just five students. It is my intention that by the end of the two day workshop, you will be more familiar both with the plants and oils, me, and your classmates, and hopefully forge some lasting partnerships to further your interests and/or work.
Plants studied include:
Lamiaceae plants such as the mints, oregano, and sage
other aromatic herbs and plants according to season.
Please note that weather and season may dictate changes to this schedule.
