If you’re a fan of Pine essential oil, take a sneak peek into the Component Blending class at Aromahead Institute!
True confession: I spent months developing this class for both in-person and online attendance, just so I could do nothing but smell and blend with Spruce, Fir and Pine essential oil!
Okay, there’s more. I wanted to explore some really exceptional blends with a class, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to do it.
This is a 1 minute 39 second video montage that shows you small clips of the blending we do in the Component Blending class.
One amazing product I added to the class is melt and pour soap. You can be really creative when you make your own bar soap. We use an organic base and add luscious butters like shea and coconut oil, beautiful aromatic powders like cardamom and vanilla, and essential oils like Black Spruce, Hemlock, Larch, Pinon Pine and Siberian Fir.
This is my quote for the class:
“To inspire . . . to breathe in”
- Cream from scratch
- Handmade resin incense
- Cardamom salt butter scrub bar

What students are saying about this class:
“The soap was fun to make and such a great smelling product (the vanilla bean powder smelled good enough to eat). I also really enjoyed the ‘best cream ever’ recipe! I was able to follow easily, and watching the video was very important for me. I saw that the temperature needed to be within one degree, so I made sure to do just that . . . it was flawless.
“I loved the pines. I also fell in love (almost addicted to) the d-limonene inhaler. I find that I really benefit from it as well. It smells so divine and it also keeps my immune system supported well.”
~ Iris Cornell
“I just reviewed my notebook from the Component Blending class I took recently, and feel so appreciative of the quality of the course materials. I wanted a chemistry class and was so pleased with my experience. I love, love, love the wonderful blends we got to create (especially the butters which I often neglect to make on my own.)”
