An alcohol intermediary oil is a special kind of infused herbal oil that uses alcohol to pre-extract, resulting in a stronger infused oil. This is an oil making method that I have fell in love with over the last year and am so excited to share with you all. I've made deep green plantain oils and amazingly aromatic mugwort oil. Amazing! Join us for this live, virtual class that will be hosted on Zoom, so you can ask your questions, show me your work, and still practice social distancing.
In this two-hour virtual "make-along" class, we will cover:
- Making alcohol intermediary oils together (you'll be in your kitchen making your own!)
- What is an AIO and how does it work
- what herbs work best
- ideas on how to use the oils.
DATE: Friday, June 5, 2020, 7-9pm
LOCATION: Zoom link will be sent prior to class.
