Essential Oil Distillation Workshop
August 18-19 in Boulder, Utah
We are very pleased to offer this 2 day workshop at House of Aromatics in southern Utah. I have used the small batch, native plants oils from this family owned company for several years and have found their product quality to be outstanding.
This weekend event is hands-on and interactive. We will be with the plants literally from the forest to the bottle; sustainably harvesting in the outdoors and operating the still to create the finished oil.
The small group allows for a true connection to the plants and a more in-depth understanding of the distillation process, the role of essential oils in the plant world and their therapeutic potential with people.
This is what authentic grassroots aromatic plant medicine is truly about. This experience is a world away from the spa and boutique experience that is so common in the essential oil community.
Due to the nature of this workshop, the size is being kept intentionally small. Early registration is recommended.
