Aromatics: Let's Talk About Sex

$65

Tuesday, December 5th | 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST

With Amy Anthony

We live in a time of binary distress—where the whole has been torn into parts. This workshop is intended to explore the female/male or yin/yang as a whole and how aromatherapy may support that view.

Plants don’t discriminate. They offer guidance to recipients, no matter their gender, race, nationality, or creed. Aromatic plants, the “less subtle” of the plants, are especially enthusiastic to communicate and share their messages of health and balance to whomever is accepting.

This workshop will explore the following themes:

  • The physiology of sex: sexual development and how it is expressed through shared but varying levels of hormones.
  • The sacredness of sex and sexuality.
  • How sexual function and regulation of reproductive activity is mediated by the nervous and endocrine systems and how aromatics and aromatherapy relate to these processes.
  • An approach to choosing essential oils to support sexual health.

After exploring these topics, you have been empowered to create your own blend of essential oils to use in an aromatic roller-ball applicator that you may use to support your lovely hormones and sexuality.

Hydrosols: Therapeutic Waters of Plant Medicine

Wednesday, November 8th | 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST

With Amy Anthony

Steam distilling aromatic plant material gives us two gifts: essential oils and hydrosols. Hydrosols are the forever changed waters created through the distillation process. You may have heard of and already use rose water or orange blossom water—hydrosols have been used for centuries for their gentle therapy.

Hydrosols can be made from aromatic and non-aromatic plants. This gives us a bridge between aromatherapy (using aromatics, specifically their essential oils) and herbalism (using aromatic and non-aromatic plants). Incorporating hydrosols into your life further expands your access to phyto-therapy.

Look forward to learning:

  • A high-level overview of the distillation process
  • A brief history of distillation and the aromatic waters
  • Benefits of using hydrosols
  • How to incorporate the hydrosols into your life/practice

Get hands-on!

  •  Feel, taste and smell a selection of hydrosols at our “hydrosol bar”
  • Create your own blend of hydrosols from the hydrosol bar to take home with you in a spray bottle.

Leave the workshop feeling refreshed by the plant waters and with an expanded perspective on plant-therapy!
