Some essential oils have a stronger association with the heart, the body and the mind. In this class bio-alchemist, Michelle Gagnon, will curate a special selection of botanical oils derived from flowers, herbs and spices perfect for this time of year. We will work with and discuss essential oils that are warming to the body, softening to the heart and offer aphrodisiac properties. Michelle will also discuss the history of scent and fragrance through evolution and the power of pheromones. Each student will have the opportunity to formulate a custom botanical body/bath oil or bath salt at the end of class to take home. Valentine’s treats and champagne will be enjoyed!
