Sue Morris, Astrological Aromatherapy: Blending astrology, aromatherapy and perfumery to create personalized botanical perfumes
“Scentsations, Scents of Self” is the original work of Sue J Morris. Sue is an astrologer with over 30 years of experience, who has incorporated herbalism, aromatherapy and organic gardening into her work with the planetary energies. In this workshop Sue shares her vision of how astrology and aromatherapy intertwine as a means of enhancing our sense of well-being. You will learn how connecting astrology, essential oils and perfumery notes can support your sense of self, health and well-being based on your unique temperament.
Sue’s talk highlights the connections between our astrological temperament and essential oils; matching the essence of who we with the essence of aromatic plants. Because scent connects deeply to our emotional centers, aromatherapy can be used to support healing on many levels, from the physical to the psychological and spiritual. Choosing essential oils to create a personalized botanical perfume enables us to combine scents reflecting our unique temperament, our “Scents of Self”.
Sue offers an innovative approach to
connecting our authentic self-based on our birth chart, to the natural
healing modality of aromatherapy. Basically, every time you wear one of
Sue’s botanical perfumes, you remind yourself of who you really are in
a very direct, sensory way. And hey, not only does it smell great-you
can create your very own blend with Sue’s guidance! Our personal scent
reminds us of our own true nature and signals to others who we are.
will offer participants the opportunity to create their own
personalized perfume at the workshop for a discounted fee of $20. As
time is limited, Sue will have time to work with 5 people, so reserve
your spot early! Everyone will get to experience how the perfumes are crafted during the workshop.
