Alcohol Intermediary Oil Make-Along
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.
MATERIALS NEEDED TO DO "MAKE-ALONG" AIO:

ABOUT VIRTUAL CLASSES WITH ADIANTUM SCHOOL:
How to join the zoom call:
I will send you a link to the scheduled conference call to the email you provide at registration. When it's time for class, you will follow that link (having already created your zoom account) and join the call. You may join with just audio, or just video. The call will start 10 minutes prior to the start of class so we can get settled in and technical difficulties worked out. I recommend using something with audio and video capabilities (phones or laptop computers work well).
How does a make-along work?
The great thing about joining virtually is that you can make the herbal preparation in your own kitchen while Im making it, thus the name make-along. Its like a sing along! I highly encourage you to do this, as it will give you the experience of making the product in your own kitchen, and you can ask questions and even show me your work (yes, Ill be able to see you!). Please see the list of materials needed and gather them before class starts.
I am so grateful for your support in this strange time! Please let me know if there are any other courses you'd like to see in this format.
