Hydrosols and Distillates for the Esthetician and Formulator- Online course series- Fridays 5 to 7 pm (PCT)- February 12th to March 5th
The dormant winter months will soon be transforming into spring as the earth begins its process of renewal. With the garden beginning to bloom, its myriad colors and smells inspire our senses in the treatment room and the formulation laboratory. All the distillates have been waiting for you in beautiful dark amber bottles to be used in our everyday life and practice.
We’ll dive deep into the world of hydrosols, pure plant distillates that have a wide variety of uses in medicinal, cosmetic, and even culinary applications. They also work with mood and emotions, calming the mind and soothing fatigue, regulating stress, and balancing the adrenals. This class series is offered live so you will be able to ask Alice any question you have about hydrosols and their uses. We will particularly focus on the usage in the Spa treatment room as well as in customized formulations.
Alice Duvernell will share her passion and wealth of knowledge about alchemy, plants, and aromatherapy in this all-levels workshop. Each student will receive a hydrosol aroma kit enabling you to experience the gifts of the garden in the comfort of your own homes. After sampling and learning about the qualities of several hydrosols and other distillates, students will learn to craft their own hydrosols from scratch using plants from the garden and readily accessible kitchen tools.
This will include step by step information on how and when to pick plants, the manufacturing and sterilization process, PH levels, blending, the science behind hydrosols and skin balance as well, and bonus recipes.
Each of you will receive a collection of ten one-ounce artisan-crafted hydrosols bottles in glass to work with during the class.
