Fragrant Herbs and Aromatherapy

Herbal Harmony Series: Harmonizing Scents

Saturday, June 8, 2024

1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Join us for an afternoon of Fragrant Herbs and Aromatherapy! Immerse yourself in the delightful world of herbal scents and therapeutic aromas as you are guided through an enriching herb garden experience.

Your journey begins in the historic Enfield Shaker Herb Garden, where you will experience the bitter and the sweet of herbal scents. Working with our Garden Coordinator Susan Quinlan, you will gather an herbal bundle that will be used to create your own “tussie mussie”, a charming Victorian-era bouquet filled with fragrant herbs and flowers that was often used to send a coded floral message.

Learn about the history and significance of fragrant herbs and their role in Shaker life, traditional medicine, and modern aromatherapy practices. Discover the secrets of blending various herbs and botanicals to craft unique aromatic mixtures. Explore the different properties of herbs and how they can enhance your well-being through the power of scent.

Join us on a journey of sensory delight as you blend an herbal spray and create an aromatic potpourri that will leave you feeling inspired and rejuvenated!

All materials are included.

Class is limited to 12 participants. Advance registration is required.
