Plant Potions: Essential Oils 101

Have you ever wanted to learn more about how to incorporate herbs and plant medicine into your daily life? Is there a special natural scent that just sends you to the moon?

Essential oils are a great starting place to begin learning about the power of plants. And making your own plant potions is a fun, accessible craft to incorporate into your daily home, beauty, and wellness routines.

The only way to really understand aromatherapy is to experience the scents with your very own nose. From juniper berry to clary sage, from cardamom, rose geranium, and crisp grapefruit – come ready to sample the scents and design a personal home or body spray to take away.

In this workshop we will practice the art of Aromatherapy and learn the basics of Essential Oils, including:

  • Common & Specific Uses.

  • Healing Benefits of EOs.

  • Safety Precautions.

  • Notes & Blending.

  • We will also discuss a basic tool-kit of Essential Oils for use at home.

Sacred Tools: Feather Fans & Smudge Bundles

Sacred Tools: Feather Fans & Smudge Bundles

For all of time people have burned various plant materials to cleanse, bless, and set the tone for sacred space and ceremony. Although the healing properties of each plant varies, the overall intention when we cleanse with herbs is to clear out negative energy and remove blockages from self or space.

In this workshop we will create two Earth-based ritual tools for use in your daily wellness practice. We will make one herbal smudge wand and bind wild feathers to create one beautiful smudging fan. All natural materials are local, sustainably sourced, and wildcrafted.

In class we will:

  • Begin with a short smudging ritual.

  • Connect with the plants and animal spirits of the materials we use.

  • Learn about the various attributes of the plants.

  • Discuss sustainable harvesting methods.

  • Design one smudge bundle and one feather fan.

There is great power and healing potential in making your own sacred tools. Sacred tools are those objects, symbols, plants, and words that anyone might use when connecting in to a spiritual, religious, or mindfulness practice. When you take the time to create with nature and weave these tools into your daily life, you begin to make room for what’s sacred to you, and to develop an intentional practice of connection with yourself and the natural world.
