Join herbalist Santalena Groves, Alchemist/Creator of Heart Grown Wild, LLC an
herbal skincare company based out of Southern Vermont to take a deep dive into
how essential oils are produced through live distillation of wild harvested plants.
The purpose of the workshop is to educate attendees through a visual
demonstration of the amount of plant material it takes to produce one drop of
essential oil. Santalena will discuss the importance of safety when working with
essential oils so that attendees can approach the use of these potent extractions
with a working knowledge and respect for the plants. Santalena will then break
down various methods of plant extraction that are more sustainable by using less
plant material. Extractions covered will include herbal oil infusions, teas, and
powders and how to bring them to your beauty rituals or herbal medicine cabinet.
