Full-Day: Making Natural Perfumes

~with Lori Nova Endres~

"Hi, Lori! That was a great class - I'm enjoying the perfumes I made, especially the solid one. I'd love to come back, to refine the mixes I did. As susal, you've done so much research and laid it out so well in the handouts, it's really a treasure trove of information. I'm really looking forward to taking more classes from you. Take care!" - Suzanna Naramore (click for more comments on this class)

Learn to make three different types of essential oil perfumes!

Come and share in the rich experience of making your own 100% natural perfumes for you, your family and loved ones. Once you see how easy and fun it is to create your own personalized natural scents, you'll never buy synthetic fragrances again. In this class you'll learn how pure essential oils can be used to create 3 different types of all-natural fragrances:

SPRAY PERFUMES: Most commercial spray perfumes use alcohol as a base to carry the perfume and then evaporate, leaving only the scent behind. We'll make an alcohol-based perfume, similar to what you find in a department store, but without the chemical ingredients.

SOLID SCENTS: Solid perfumes (aka cream perfumes) are made from a combination of wax, carrier oils, and aromatic oils. They can also be moisturizing and softening to the skin. Solid perfumes are also discreet as they scent only you and not the entire room!

ROLL-ON PERFUME OILS: Oil-based scents in a handy roller-ball applicator are very easy to make and wear. Roll-on bottles are great - not only are they compact for stashing in your bag or luggage - but they allow you to apply perfume without having to touch it with your fingers.

This class also covers: Basic Perfume Terminology, Essential Oil Blending, Equipment & Supplies, Essential Oil Precautions, 12 Top, 12 Middle & 10 Base Notes, Recipes & Blend Ideas, Sources for Perfume Making Supplies and much more!

The materials fee (paid to teacher on the day of class) includes all supplies used in class as well as what you take home: thorough handouts, drop-by-drop recipes & instructions, and your 3 custom-scented perfumes: 1/2 oz. solid, 1/3 oz. spray & a 1/3 oz. roll-on. Note: It's a good idea not to wear any scented products on the day of class.

Each of the 3 signature scents you make & take home will be created entirely by you!
