Aromatic Teas from the Garden Workshop
There’s nothing quite like fresh aromatic tea from the garden! But tea isn’t just for drinking. It can be used as a facial toner, in the bath and as a foot soak. And making the best cup of aromatic tea means understanding when to infuse, when to decoct, and when to use fresh or dried herbs.
What better place to learn about using aromatic herbs from the garden to make tea than be surrounded by the herbs and plants in our garden and studio! And taught by an original English aromatherapist!
In this workshop you will learn:
- Ten common plant profiles of herbs used to make tea.
- How to make a decoction of tea.
- How to make an infusion of tea.
- How to make aromatic teas for the bath, for foot soaks, to use in a compress, and as a facial toner.
- Learn how to make tea from both fresh and dried herbs.
- How to incorporate the use of aromatic teas in aromatherapy practice.
You will take part in:
- Picking fresh herbs from the garden (depending on season).
- Making all types of teas as listed.
You will take home:
- A course workbook.
Location: The Aromatic Teas from the Garden workshop is located on a private one acre original homestead property, situated approximately five minutes outside of Sedona (West). We live and work on the property. We have a garden studio which houses our working still, and a separate room for blending and making custom blends during class and for business. Our aromatic garden surrounds the building structures (including our home) and you will be free to investigate our plants (depending upon season). Please note that this is a private property and is only open to guests and students through prior reservation and agreement.
We are at the end of a private dirt road (accessible by all types of vehicles) in the quiet countryside of “original” Sedona surroundings. Full directions will be provided with your information sheet once you have paid the final balance for your workshop/retreat. We value the privacy and quiet of our surroundings, so be mindful of your interaction with residents and nature when visiting us.
