Memories, Molecules and Medicine: An exploration of our sense of smell and essential oils
Presented Saturday, Jan. 14th.  Sign up now!  

Fragrances are ubiquitous in our environment - from plants and foods to cosmetics and cleaning products.  HiveBio invites you to explore the sense of smell and the molecules responsible for fragrances through this interactive workshop presented by Dr. Reitha Weeks. You will learn about the physiology of smell, test your ability to identify smells, investigate product labels and evaluate aromatherapy claims.

Understanding the biology behind our sense of smell and the chemistry behind fragrances opens the door to the amazing world of fragrances and their uses.  How can a favorite smell call up pleasant memories?  Can a small change in a molecules shape yield a very different smell?  What is an essential oil and how is it used?  These are just a few of the topics that will be covered.

You will test your sense of smell in multiple activities and investigate fragrance labeling on consumer products.  Distilling essential oil from lavender will lead into a discussion about the uses of essential oils.  You will take home lotion samples with fragrances of your choice.

Maximum class size for this workshop is 9 students, $25 per participant. Pre-registration required to attend this class, sorry, no walk-ins!

This class is not suitable for chemical or fragrance sensitive individuals. The subject matter for this class is above an elementary level, this class is not suitable for children under 7th grade.
