This is a masterclass on natural perfumery and essential oil blending. Students will learn how to custom blend essential oils and tincture plant essences to create natural perfumes and essences to be used in soaps, candles and personal care products. This course is an intensive blending experience and also a chance for students to experience a wide variety of essential oils. Come learn to blend intuitively, following your inner guidance. Students will explore creating intention blends, encoding memories of feelings, places or people.
In our most recent workshop we had students who chose to commemorate a loved one, another chose to replicate the feeling of hiking in a forest, and another student created a blend to help inspire creativity in others. Why and what you blend in this class is completely up to you. You'll learn blending techniques from master essential oil alchemist and owner of Back Porch Soap Company, Marla Bosworth. Marla will share 22 years of experience in this workshop to guide you in blending essential oils and natural fragrances to create signature blends, making natural perfumes and also incorporating essences into soaps and beauty products. Then she will guide you through your very own, custom, essential oil blending creations in class.
This is a hands-on class. Students will blend and experiment with essential oils to create two signature essential oil blends. In total you will take home two unique custom blends. Experience how to intuitively combine essential oils to use as roll-on, solid and spray perfumes, colognes, as well as in candles, soaps, bodycare and haircare products and other scented products.
This class is intended for essential oil enthusiasts, soapmakers, candlemakers, indie beauty entrepreneurs, and anyone interested in creating their own fragrance. No prior experience is needed.
