The Secrets from the Aromatic Garden retreat is two day aromatherapy retreat of hands-on distillation of oils/hydrosols, plant identification, and blending, in the sanctuary of our peaceful garden, studio, and workroom!
Length of Workshop: The workshop is two days in length and takes place over a Friday and Saturday to allow you to have a couple of days rejuvenation in Sedona itself, if you so wish.
Location: The Secrets from the Aromatic Garden retreat is located on a private one acre original homestead property, situated approximately five minutes outside of Sedona (West). We have a garden studio (where aromatic blends are created/classes are held) and a botanical workroom (where classes are sometimes held) which houses our working still. Our aromatic garden surrounds the building structures (including our home) and you will be free to investigate our plants (depending upon season).
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.
Secrets from the Aromatic Garden Retreat
The Secrets from the Aromatic Garden Retreat is a combination of a workshop and a retreat as each activity is designed to be both educational and a bit of fun! You will take part in plant identification in the garden (subject to availability), take part in a hands-on distillation of aromatic plants (under instruction) and create aromatic blends in the garden, studio, and/or botanical workroom. We will carry out one plant distillation on our copper still, another plant-based demonstration, study plants in the garden (depending upon availability), discuss aromatic profiles and use that knowledge to create at least two aromatic blends.
What’s Included: Refreshments and lunch are provided due to our more remote location. The workshop also includes a custom workbook and all materials required to make the products in class. You will also receive a tote bag of aromatic treats to take home!
Continuing Education (CE Credits): Continuing education (CE) credits are available to meet National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA) CE requirements and the Aromatherapy Registration Council (ARC) CE requirements (12 hours for each workshop).
