Wilderness Perfume: Juniper Ridge Field Lab

85.00

Join Juniper Ridge founder, Hall Newbegin, as we explore the hidden corners of Wallowa County, then return to Joseph to create a one-of-a-kind Wilderness Perfume. We'll engage our animal senses, thoughtfully foraging natural elements on the trail, developing a story for our aromatic adventure. Then, we'll learn a simple distillation process to transform our plant matter into perfume. Participants will leave with a portrait of our day in a bottle and a greater understanding of fragrance as an expression of place.
