Exploring Pine, Spruce, Fir and Helichrysum Species!
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 am consistently impressed with the ongoing refinement of the education offered by Aromahead. The continuous updating of the research-based information provides such an incredible resource. And of course, I love, love, love the wonderful blends we get to create (especially the butters which I often neglect to make on my own.)
Component Blending takes place over a 3-day weekend and includes an in-depth study of the chemistry, therapeutic uses, and blending techniques for a wide selection of conifer (pine, spruce and fir) and helichrysum essential oil species.
Spend three days in the aroma of a pine forest! Learn to make your own cream, bar soap, resin incense and a cardamom salt butter scrub!
Blending is approached from a chemical component perspective, looking at evidence-based medicinal components, and choosing oils based on this approach. The chemical families are considered, with an emphasis on the individual components.
