Combining the beautiful blues of natural indigo and earthy pinks of avocado dye to create your own indigo sunrises on a naturally dyed scarf for Spring. This is the perfect activity to embrace the renewing energy that is Spring! Delve into the alchemy of dye, as you mix and layer indigo pigment with avocado dye. You will gain knowledge and skills to use indigo and avocado at home. All levels welcome.
Custom Aromatherapy Oil Blend - The Sacred Tree:
Every ancient culture with a reverence for nature has a sacred grove of trees for rituals or safe harbor. We will combine each of the plant parts used in aromatherapy and create our own sacred tree blends from the ground up, and everyone will take home their own unique rollerball blend. Essential oil origins and natural perfumery notes will be included in this restorative and inspiring aromatic workshop, as we soak in the beautiful environment surrounding us! Well suited for beginners and advanced students alike.
