Essential Oil Perfume Making Class - An Introduction
Sunday February 9th 2014 10:00-2:30
When we hear the word "perfume" we usually think about love, sensuality, passion and seduction. They have typically be used for the attraction or pleasure of another person. Although perfumes have been produced for this purpose for many centuries, they have also been used for health and happiness. What if you used your perfume for your own personal enjoyment and wellbeing?
In this class we will explore the many other ways to use perfumes. Would you like to make a perfume for de-stressing? How about for joy or inspiration? You can even make a perfume just for nurturing yourself. Come join me as we learn to take perfume out of the boudoir and into your everyday life. Of course you can always make a perfume for love as well.
This class is an introduction to the world of natural perfume making. Essential oil perfumes not only smell amazing, but they also support our well being. Learn how to utilize essential oils to improve your health while making beautiful, pure, botanical based perfumes. You can create uplifting perfumes, calming perfumes, sensual perfumes and more. You will learn how to use "scent notes" to create fantastic blends. We will also discuss carriers and how they affect the scent of your blend. We will take a look at perfume history, how it scent affects us and where the botanicals come from and the differences between solids, liquids and aerosol perfumes. We will also compare natural perfumery to synthetic perfumery the pro's and con's.
In this class you will be making:
~One Solid Perfume
~One Roll-on Perfume
~One Aerosol Perfume
You will leave with a manual that will include all of the recipes from class, blending techniques, carrier information, a suggested book list for self study and a list of all the resources so you can order supplies and begin creating your own blends at home.
Come join us and create a gift for a friend, a custom cologne for your husband, a calming blend for your children or a sensual blend for your lover - just in time for valentines day.
