Event description

Description

Interested in a tranquil afternoon spent outside of the city featuring local organic herbs, aromatic notes of essential oils filling the air, & time out in nature?

Sounds like a great way to spend an afternoon, right?

Join YEG Herbalist Dionne Jennings & Gord Steinrath at Greater Edmonton's local herb farm, Harmonic Herbs in Barrhead, where we will spend an afternoon experiencing the alchemy of essential oil distillation.

Herb Grower extraordinare Gord will be firing up his aromatherapy still & walking us through the distillation process that begins with our plant material and ends with our aromatic essential oil. We will be discussing considerations for essential oil use and the properties & benefits of Black Spruce, our beautiful aromatic oil of the day, as well as learning the process of essential oil distillation from start to finish.

We will switch gears from the distillation process while we wait for the oil to finish, & Gord will be giving a tour of Harmonic Herbs farm so we can get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at herb & vegetable cultivation & heritage seed saving in Alberta.

Please feel free to bring snacks or a bagged lunch-we will be breaking for snacks/light lunch after the farm tour before we wrap up our distillation demo & bottle an essential oil for each participant to take home.


Please plan for the weather-we will be spending the afternoon out of doors, so dress to be comfortable-bring hats, water, mosquito repellant, etc. And snacks!

(Indoor bathroom facilities available-in case you were wondering about that. ;))
