Potted Balm, Basic Perfumery & Mood Altering Plants
Three workshops in two days... February 16 and 17 at Pot + Box, Detroit.
SYNERGY = the pairing of Alchemy and Pot + Box. So I'm excited to be at the lovely new shop Lisa has opened in the iconic Fisher Building.
Classes are intimate with plenty of hands on, and at the end you take home either a potted balm, a new perfume, or 3 mood mists.
Mood Mists - Make & Take:
We know that smell can trigger powerful memories. We can also flip that switch and use fragrance to calm, excite and elevate the mood. A quick conversation on the science and then we'll have a blending bar to create your own mood altering fragrance mists. (make 3-5 10mL mists)
Potted Balm - Make & Take:
Is it a balm, a salve, a lotion? We'll make meaning of the words, and talk 'skin 101'. Then use a basic recipe to create a custom potted balm to take home. Choose from several plant-based additives that address the woes of winter skin. We will use bees wax from Bees In The D to make our balm
UPDATE: this workshop will happen at a later date
Fragrance Fundamentals - perfume Make & Take:
When we talk about fragrance we borrow the lyrical language of music... notes... accords. Fragrance, like music has the power to transport us to places real and imagined. Come ready to play with scent. Use pre-blended complex bits of fragrance, fresh single scents to create a blend for you or as a gift. (9 mL purse atomizer)
