Whether it's either, both, or neither but you like to have fun, we'll have a casual get-together that will be fun and informative, too! Learn about essential oils, how they're made (don't worry, we won't get too science-y!), and all the ways they can be used from making our houses smell good to replacing beauty products to supporting our physical and emotional health (because, as we know, the emotions - stress is a great example - can affect our physical health, too!). And you'll get to make a couple goodies, too, and get the recipes to make more! These are easy to make and are great to use yourself and to give as gifts for teachers, friends, family, and more. We'll make room sprays (there will be choices of a Sleepy-time and an appropriate seasonal-inspired one) along with body lotion and lip balm. And, as an extra bonus, some all-natural cleaner for around the house and some additional easy-peasy but good recipes to take home! *A $20.00 material fee is payable to the instructor at the start of the class.
