What you'll learn in this perfumery class:

There are many ways to coax therapeutic benefits from plant material: from distillation to solvent extraction (tinctures) to flower/plant essences. One of the most common and beneficial ways is to work with water, temperature and plant material to make simple “teas.” From an aromatherapy perspective, aromatic plants and their essential oils are generally heating and drying–what may I turn to when there is a situation that calls for cooling and moistening? Or a situation where fluids are called for in order to drink and bathe internal tissues? Also, many aromatic plants are better off prepared as a cold “tea” versus using heat as to not disrupt the desired volatile components. Interesting, right?

Join us on this evening in the fall to explore the benefits of cold infusions versus hot infusions versus decoctions. We will sample and discuss several single-herbal preparations to have direct-personal experience–this includes making hot infusions and macerations during class so the process is revealed. Plus, everyone will create their own blend of “tea” to take with them to enjoy at home.
