Hello! I’ve been working on putting together an essential oil course and wanted to let you know that it is about finished, so please expect an email from me in the next day or two if you are an email subscriber to Botanical Alchemy & Apothecary. I wanted to thank my subscribers for being there, and also was hoping for some feedback, so the email will include a discount code to view the course for free. There will be a limited number (because I assume not all of you will choose to take the course) so if you are definitely interested, please let me know so I can get you the information first. You can preview the course on my page “Courses” on the website. Thank you for reading this blog and being part of this community! I hope to see you at Botanical Alchemy & Apothecary!

Here’s the quick method to making an herbal oil. I used rose buds but you can use any dried herb in the same way. If you want to try the Folk Method instead, it’ll take longer but no artificial heat is needed so it’s a tad easier, especially if you are crafting with kids. Either way, herbal oils are fun to make and so useful~ you can use them just as you would any oil on your body, face, hair, or in a bath. You can use them to make salves, body butter, serums, body scrubs, perfumes, and more. Rose oil would make a lovely Mother’s Day gift and you have time to do the Folk Method if you prefer as long as you start soon. Happy Creating!
