Introduction to Flower & Crystal Essences

Presented by: John Gartland, Herbalist

Working with the spirit of a plant or mineral can help to unlock the mysteries of our lives.  The essence of a flower could share a new perspective or insight about a long standing question. The essence of a crystal could ignite your deepest desires into action. Essences,  which contain the vibration or spirit of our natural allies, hold many keys to our evolution. 

We will discuss many flower and crystal essences as well as water and its role with the essences, history of flower essences, how to find and use essences that work for you specifically and how to make essences at home.

Everyone will take home a flower/crystal essence blend of their finding. Over 200 essences will be available for choosing/blending. Essence making handouts will also be included.

Come with curiosity or come with purpose, the essences have answers for everyone. 

Vegan snacks and herbal tea will be provided.

Come join Vicki and Brittney explore the beauty of creating your own aromatherapy blends.  We will be sharing with you the art of blending essential oils drop by drop.  We will share with you various oils and their properties that may be appropriate for certain conditions or concerns.  We will also be discussing the “notes” of these various oils….top note, middle note, and base note so you will be able to create an lusciously balanced blend.   Dilution and safety is always a concern when using essential oils for their healing properties, so we will be examining with you the necessity for proper dilution and how you can figure out how to create a safe blend for your loved ones no matter what age.  

This is a hands-on class as each participant will be creating 4 different personal take home blends; a blend for stress, a facial blend, an energizing blend and a pain/inflammation blend.

***Please note……this class is for participants who have prior knowledge and some basic understanding of essential oils.  If you would like to attend and have never attended an aromatherapy class it is important that you attend Vicki’s Top 10 Essential Oils for your Family Medicine Cabinet class, or something similar to, on Saturday, February 3rd.  Unfortunately due to time constants for this class we will not have time for basic essential oil training. (please see class list for more information on this February 3rd class).   Hand-outs provided.
