Fragrant Anointing Balms Workshop

  • Tigerlily Perfumery 973 Valencia St. San Francisco United States (map)

From the infamous Witches’ Flying Ointment to divinatory unguents made of rose, oud, immortelle and labdanum, infusions of herbs and aromatic materials have been combined into solid mediums to aid practitioners and the curious alike in their rituals and explorations for millennia.

In this fragrant workshop, students will explore the foundations of creating ointments and solid perfumes using fragrant materials and infused oils with Mauricio Garcia of Herbcraft Perfumery.

Techniques and lore regarding both fragrance creation and botanical intelligences will be explored. After discussing and experiencing essential oils, absolutes and infusions from Mauricio’s workbench, students will create a balm of their own design under the instructor’s guidance, to serve whatever purpose they desire.
