Our esthetics students had the opportunity to go on a field trip at Young Living Farms, where they cultivate, harvest, and distill essential oils. With over 1,400 acres of fragrant herbs, a cool reservoir, pristine natural beauty and fresh mountain air, the Whispering Springs Farm is a beautiful destination! We enjoyed the afternoon with some Lavender ice cream made from their beautiful lavender fields, while taking a horse wagon ride of the land. After our wagon tour we were able to take a distillery tour and learn all about the process behind extracting the essential oils from the plants.
We ended the day with an essential oil class, where we learned all about the different properties and purposes of the many essential oils. We all learned a lot, and went home smelling great 😉
