We will explore the different essential oils that you can use to make DIY perfume. We will discuss different essential oils, how they are produced, how they are used, and how to make the best blends that will deliver the exact personal statement you want. As part of the class we will touch on both physical and aroma-therapeutic properties of various essential oils, the environmental considerations surrounding essential oils and the difference between 100% Natural Essential Oils, Natural Fragrance Oils, and Synthetic Fragrance Oils. We will also have a hands on workshop where you can design your own 100% Natural Essential Oil blend and then bottle it so you can take home your very own uniquely yours perfume.
