Essential Oils expert Denise Castelli will be hosting a Clay Pendant Diffuser Make & Take event using essential oils.

Come play with clay! In this class we’ll make a clay pendant diffuser with three essential oils as our theme: cedarwood, lime and lemon. We’ll learn about essential oils with a focus on the properties of these three oils while we have fun making some take home goodies.

Make and take home goodies:
– one clay pendant diffuser
– essential oil sample of your choice

Special NOTE: in this hands-on class you will be working with clay and water. It has potential to get a bit messy depending on how you work with the clay in case you want to bring or wear a smock, work shirt or play clothes!

Space is limited and registration is required for this event; there is a $10 materials fee, payable at the door.
