Perfume of the Forest: Devils Club, Douglas Fir, & Hemlock Spruce with Jessica Ring
Location: Portland Studio
Teacher: Jessica Ring
“Through awakening our wild sense of smell, we begin to see things in nature, and ourselves, otherwise hidden.” -Jessica Ring
Join us for an aromatic journey through the ancient forests of the Pacific Northwest, exploring fragrant elixirs and oil extractions of Devil’s Club, Douglas Fir, and Western Hemlock. Students will experience the essences of these powerful plants and trees, carefully collected and distilled by Jessica, while she leads the group in blending a perfume. Class will introduce medicinal uses of this power-trio, as well as lessons on fragrance profiles and blending technique. Students will leave with samples of perfumes blended in class.
