Lotus flowers and roses are two of our favorite botanicals growing here at Los Poblanos and are the inspiration behind our upcoming The Lotus & The Rose workshop on Saturday, August 5th. Join us for a full day of relaxation and learning surrounded by our beautiful gardens. Begin the morning with a sound healing meditation, led by Aimee Conlee, where you will practice breathing, light stretching, and relaxation techniques involving sound. Once you’re fully relaxed, take a leisurely stroll around the pond and though the rose gardens, where Christa Obuchowski will talk about the different types of roses and how their essential oils are utilized in aromatherapy and herbal medicine. The in-depth discussion will continue with a demonstration of the distillation process that Christa uses to extract the precious oils from the plants.
