Aromatherapy Consultation vs Workshop
What is the difference between an aroma consultation and an aroma workshop? Here at Z Salon & Spa, we have two fun ways to learn about essential oils, make customized blends that are unique to you, and create functional body care products that not only smell good, but have therapeutic benefits.
An aroma consultation is a private, one-on-one session with Julie, our in-house aromatherapist. She will customize the session to your needs. If you need information on general use, essential oil education/safety, have specific health or emotional issues that you would like addressed with essential oils, or would like to spend the time customizing your own natural “pure-fume,” this is a wise choice. Consults are about 45 minutes and cost $50. However, that entire fee is redeemable in blended product. If you blend $20, then you pay $30 for the session. If you blend $50, you pay $0 for the session. If you blend $85, you pay $0 for the session and just pay the cost of the blends. Blends can include roller balls, diffuser oils, undiluted blends, diluted body lotions, massage oils, cleansers, aroma purefumes and bath products. We also have undiluted pure essential oils for purchase. Aroma consults are available by appointment on select Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Workshops have a theme, and are in a group setting. Workshops are a great choice for friend outings, date nights, mother/daughter dates, or just come solo. Some workshops are learning oriented and we will practice what we learn with blending. Those workshops are typically 90 minutes to 2 hours long. Other workshops are more fluid, meaning come and go as you please during the workshop hours. For example, our Holiday Make-N-Take workshop is for blending gifts for others (or yourself) and does not include a learning segment, so participants sign up for time slots and come in for 30 minutes to 1 hour to smell different aroma blends and oil combinations. The blending is self-guided with Julie’s assistance. The workshops will have a nominal fee of $15, which is not redeemable in product but is used for costs. Anything blended is in addition to the fee.
With these two great aroma options, there is something for everyone. Join us for our next workshop “Natural Perfumery” on May 30th. Give us a call today to register for a class or to set up a consultation.
