・・・ I love all my classes. But my most favorite is Scent Play, and I loved it more when I moved on to teaching the whole day more intensive class. I grew up with allergies to scent. I would be nauseous and begin sneezing, usually it would progress to fever. The only way to relieve it was to take a mango leaf , a guava leaf,a eucalyptus leaf ( radiata not cinerea ) crush with my fingers and would chase after that camphoric smell that would make it all better. I did not know about essential oils until i extracted my first drop of Jasmine sambac with a distillation setup when I was sixteen. Apparently my nose welcomes eo's. Playing on Wednesday with a group of 11 people. Everyone gets a set of Top notes, Heart notes and Base notes. A disclaimer though. There is aromatherapy and there is natural perfumery and the disciplines behind these are similar but different too. I have geeked on these and continue to geek on them. Discovery and Learning never stops. Just know that there are some ways I do that do not belong to either practice but that i do with caution and with everything into consideration -because I play a different way. Let's play on Wednesday! See you students. #bodyfoodallnaturalmakersacademy
