What you'll learn in this crafts class:

Learn the science behind aromatherapy as you gain knowledge of how chemical properties influence the therapeutic effects of essential oils. Brace yourself for some excitement as each week you will learn how to create your own aromatherapy product (body butters, bath salts, hand sanitizers, and more) that you'll get to take home! Take just one class or a couple or you can even sign up for the whole course which runs for 12 weeks long, once a week. Whichever way, I will guide you with ease as there are no required prerequisites!

Refund Policy

If SC cancels a class due to low enrollment or other extenuating circumstances, all participants will be notified to arrange for a credit towards another class.

If you cancel less than 5 calendar days before your scheduled class, SC may not issue any class credit or transfer.

No Show Policy 

Instructors are allowed to leave and cancel class after 30 minutes of no students within the teaching space and after this point, there are no refunds.

Sending a Friend in Your Place 

You may send a friend in your place in any such circumstance, but it is your responsibility to inform your friend policies applicable to them. This is because we allow you to send someone last minute.


If you need to reschedule your class(es), there is a strict 3 time policy. This means we will not reschedule you after missing 3 classes. Reschedules are only for the same class(es) initially paid for. 24-hour minimum notice is required for any rescheduling due to the nature of how we both prepare for and book for the rent of the class space. We cannot refund after 24 hours leading up to the class time.

SC cannot provide refunds, credits, or class transfers for classes missed as a result of illness, job loss, personal emergencies or events beyond our control. In general, Seeds Center does not provide any refunds.
