In this class, Michelle Gagnon will highlight precious essential oils such as Sandalwood, Geranium, Sea Buckthorn and Carrot Seed that help recover the skin from the harsh summertime sun. These oils are grown and harvested from around the world and foster properties that feed, rejuvenate and hydrate the skin.
In this class, bio-alchemist, Michelle Gagnon, will discuss the lands to which these oils are native, their traditional use in culture, and the many health benefits they provide today. We will learn their role in natural perfumery and work with a carefully curated selection of fine essences, including a few very unique and precious materials to make a custom blend of choice.
Each student will take home the collection of curated oils, either a custom body or bath oil and an informative packet to continue your learning of natural perfuming.
