You may know the mystical, magical healing powers of Essential Oils when applied to the skin. Now learn how to use EO's in exotic desserts to enhance their flavor and boost your immunity and that of your family's! This is a hands-on workshop so bring your apron and willing hands. We will make Chocolate Truffles with Fresh Mint Centers, Carob Cups with Coconut Cherry Cordial Centers, Blue Heaven Delight (a coconut blueberry mousse) and Coconut Chia Pudding (a quick, high Omega 3 pudding). And... just to snack on, there will be Fermented Nut Cheez with crackers and a beautiful Minted EO Water with Flower Petal Ice Hearts. You will also learn the art of Kitchen Yoga, bring more love, joy and gratitude into the making and serving of your food creations.
