Kris James, Certified Culinary Herbalist, Chef/Culinary Educator, Aromatherapist, Owner of Magpies Aromatherapy, Waconia
Are you looking for different ways to cope with fatigue, stress, and anger? Consider smelling your way to a happier or more contented mood! Kris will begin by discussing how fragrances have a measureable impact on our mood and how you can use aromatherapy in your day-to-day life to positively impact your emotions. You will experience a variety of aromatherapy blends and then work together in small groups to make your own essential oil creations in a fun, relaxed kitchen setting. Take home samples to share with family/friends, comprehensive handouts, and detailed recipes including folklore, historical information and health benefits of individual ingredients.
