Herbs and plants have been used for centuries, harvested directly from our gardens and used as medicine in the form of oils, waters, perfumes, tinctures, salves, and teas. As more and more people become interested in essential oils and aromatherapy, the issue of sustainability rises to the fore.

In this workshop, we will go “back-to-basics” and look at some of the ways in which commonly-grown garden plants (such as sage, thyme, mint, basil, calendula, sunflower and more) were used in the past, and how we can adapt those plants for use today. How can we grow our own plants and use them not just as essential oils, but as hydrosols, infused oils, in compresses, soaks, salts, teas, flower essences, and more?

This workshop will cover examples of case studies I’ve encountered in practice, a scent blending exercise with essential oils, and a sample of common garden plant monographs.

By the end of this workshop, I hope that you will be inspired to think about how you can use plants from your garden in aromatherapy (in various formats), both therapeutically and aromatically, or have the knowledge to choose products that utilize these methods.
