During this workshop, Nathalie Abi Khalil will guide the participants through the practical and sensorial experiences in extracting essences from herbs and flowers. The participants will learn and use the steam distillation process to extract essential oils and hydrosols (aromatic waters) from sage and rosemary. Through discussions and testing of different oils, the participants will learn about native aromatic and medicinal plants used in extraction as well as their benefits and traditional uses. Participants should sign up through this form.
Since 2011, Nathalie Abi Khalil has been using her years of experience in wellness and hospitality to develop a holistic approach to health rooted in local skills and understanding of native ecologies. Her interest lies in learning and sharing knowledge about folk medicine, traditional beauty rituals, and herbal handcrafting.
