Essential Oils with Deborah Kraemer August 13 – 14, 2022

Essential oils are simply the oils extracted from plants— “essence of the plant.” These oils are often rich in fragrance and are commonly used in perfumes, cosmetics, soaps and air fresheners. They are also used in aromatherapy, a form of alternative medicine. In this class, students will explore plants that create volatile oils, then learn how they can be use in designing then curating nature into healing and mood enhancing essences. Deborah will bring a full range of essential oils for students to explore their own creative process. Participants will be using whole plants in processes of distillation, maceration, expression which will provide a platform for your own personal journey in aromatherapy.

Students will travel through a scent timeline–bring along your scent memories, family traditions, recipes, and all scents your nose desires to explore. During the weekend students will enjoy learning from each other, crafting and celebrating their family’s lore. Deborah is grateful for the opportunity to have this time together with her students using the best of nature to create blends that are useful for an array of possibilities.
