COOKING WITH ESSENTIAL OILS
WILHELM, JOANNA
This is going to be so much fun!!  By popular request, we’re going to be talking about how essential oils can be used in cooking.  There are a lot of benefits to doing so, including one -  that they don’t lose their flavor and aren’t as expensive, in the long run, as their dried herb counterparts.  It is critical that you know not all essential oils are created equally and can be safely used in cooking. How do you know what’s safe?  We’ll be mixing up some recipes while we talk and learn, and sampling the results. Come ready to get involved and to snack.  PLEASE COMMUNICATE ANY FOOD ALLERGIES OR RESTRICTIONS WHEN YOU SIGN UP, and we will do our best to accommodate your concerns in the recipes selected for the class.

THE DIRTY DOZEN (MAKE AND TAKE OF ESSENTIAL OIL-BASED ALTERNATIVES)
WILHELM, JOANNA
Don’t worry, this course is NOT a watch and talk on the movie.  What we’ll be talking about are the 12 bad actor chemical groups that are in so many of the products we use today. Wonder why they are still being used if the research says otherwise?  Let’s demystify this so that you can have information to make better decisions for you and your family.  Don’t worry; the class will not be all doom and gloom ‘cause that’s no fun! We’ve got information on suggestions and tried-and-true solutions for good, clean, natural alternatives.  We’ll create a couple of goodies, like a room spray and a sugar scrub, plus give you plenty of other easy-peasy recipes. (Extra BONUS:  The recipes can also be used to make wonderful holiday gifts!!)
