Description

Sniff through our stinky past and make your own herbal reed diffusers! Today’s history comes deodorized. Join us for a whiff of the past with historical tidbits such about King Henry VIII’s festering leg wound, baldness being “cured” by combining chicken droppings with potassium salts, and spreading it on bald areas & much more.

Next you’ll learn about the medicinal benefits of various herbs and essential oils including how cinnamon can help regulate blood sugar for diabetics, and how rosemary has been recognized as a memory tonic since the ancient Egyptions, and is currently being studied for use in Alzheimer’s

Finally, you’ll create your own 8-oz Herbal Reed Diffuser based on your preferences/needs. Choose one of four blends:
Sleeping Beauty – bedroom scent for insomnia, stress, anxiety
Dear John – bathroom scent for sanitizing, odors
Doggone It! – pet odors
All in the Family – family room & family area scents for refreshing, uplifting
