A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of attending a wonderful workshop led by my friend Michelle, of Between Heaven and Earth Aromatherapy, at Uprooted Bloom Room in Scottsdale. It was such a relaxing, positive experience. Michelle is so knowledgeable and such a fantastic teacher. I loved the loads of mind-blowing information that she presented in an easy, comprehensive way. It wasn't overwhelming--it was fascinating. There was so much hands on experience as well, I feel like I've retained the info. (Well, I also kept my notes.) I'm excited to attend another workshop at the Strawberry Hedgehog boutique this Thursday, 8/17.
We made two custom blends -- an inhaler and a roll on scent -- both of which live in my purse. Really understanding the different properties and intentions of each oil helps you create things of beauty you will use and that will benefit you, and I'm so grateful to Michelle for deepening my knowledge on this. I feel that it is similar to cooking in that you have to know the food you're working with to know what will work well together. Michelle is like a master chef, and her knowledge is invaluable.
Such a great experience. This Thursday will be more of the same. I'm so excited. I wouldn't miss it for anything. (Maybe Keanu Reeves. That would probably be the only reason I'd miss it. But I feel like Keanu would want to come. He seems like that kind of guy.)
