Holiday Gift Making Party:


Blue Heron Holiday Essential Oil GiftsWhere: Aillea, 344 King Street, Downtown Charleston
Dates: Sunday, December 9th
Time:  2-4 pm
Cost: $30, includes a voucher toward $15 product purchase at Aillea

Join Lisa Abernathy of Blue Heron Acupuncture and Apothecary to make three essential oil gifts to either share for the holidays or keep for yourself.  Essential oils make fantastic gifts: they are safe, effective and user-friendly for your health, self-care rituals, and home.

In this two hour workshop, you’ll learn the basic principles of essential oils – how to use them safely and effectively, dilutions, carrier oils, and notes.  Then you’ll make your own essential oil facial mist, therapeutic roll-on and bath soaking blend. For the gifts you make, you can choose from blends Lisa supplies or make your own. Please wear clothes you don’t might getting oil on.  This workshop is recommended for those age 13 and up.

Your ticket includes a $15 credit for in-store shopping at Aillea.

Dates: Wednesday, January 9, Registration coming soon via Wildcraft
Time:  5:30-7:30 pm

Back by popular demand! Enjoy a unique workshop with Lisa Abernathy and Wildcraft’s owner + curator, Holly Thorpe, on Chinese medicine techniques you can use to enhance the health and beauty of your skin. We will discuss the techniques and principles behind facial cupping and gua sha. Then you will luxuriate in a self-facial using exquisite serums and balms from Wildcraft. Lisa will explain and guide you through facial cupping and gua sha, and you will leave with a cup and gua sha set to use at home. These effective, gentle, and easy-to-use manual techniques increase circulation to the skin, decrease wrinkles and discoloration, stimulate collagen, enhance lymphatic drainage, and give you a gorgeous glow. The night will conclude with a private shopping experience.
