Each student will make and take home two custom aromatherapy body care products.

Why learn about essential oils?

Essential oils are more popular today than ever before.  Naturally, everyone loves them for their amazing scent and the wonderful experiences we have with them.  This popularity has led to wide use in the public and unfortunately, the misuse of oils as well.  Just  does unfortunately lead to skin reactions and undesirable health effects.

  • Peppermint , Mentha x piperita
  • Lavender, Lavandula angustifolia
  • Palmarosa, Cymbopogon martinii var. motia
  • Orange,  Citrus sinensis
  • Vetiver, Vitiveria zizanoides
  • Cedarwood,  Juniperus virginiana
  • Rosalina,  Melaleuca ericifolia

  • Use essential oils for health and wellness
  • Safely blend oils together
