Botanical Extracts 101 for The Herbal Formulator

June 9, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm


$75 + $25 material fee

In this demo and hands on class, students will learn the therapeutic mathematical ratios to make quality botanical extractions in alcohol, glycerin and oil. These extracts are very versatile and can be used for medicine, perfume and cosmetic formulas.

The goal of this class is to enable students to work from the raw dried, fresh or wild harvested materials to the finished product. These botanical extracts are a perfect base and potent ingredient for making quality medicinal, aromatherapy and cosmetic products.

A range of cosmetically and medicinally  prized plants will be presented; giving the students the opportunity of a hands-on experience, for making their customized botanical extracts themselves. Many other botanical extraction techniques will be shared during the class such as effleurage and percolation. Students will bring home a customized glycerin extract and oil extract and a previously infused, ½ oz botanical tincture.
