About the Class: We know it's a classic, ubiquitous & beautiful, but what are some reasons to use rose? What are the medicinal qualities? What can we do with rose and how can we make our own herbal products? This class is not limited to aromatherapy and beauty products. We will make an elixir or glycerine as well as talk about using it as food and get some tips on blending it into teas. Although we will be making things it will be an information rich class as well.
