Organic & Analytic Chemistry 101 and Extraction Processes(beginners)

Fragrance Therapy (uNDERSTANDING THE POWER OF ODOURS)
Fragrance therapy - also commonly known as 'olfactory therapy’ is a psycho-emotional method based on using odours and the energetic vibration of some essential oils. The aromatic molecules act on specific areas of the brain to release memories and emotions, including any emotional or psychological blocks contributing to re-balancing the psycho-emotional balance and wellbeing. Thus, unlike Aromatherapy which focuses on the therapeutic and medicinal properties of essential oils, Fragrance therapy focuses mainly on the power of scents on our subconscious mind, using the sense of smell as the main vehicle.
functional perfumery (applying scents to functional products)
creating scents is an art and many times, scents are not necessarily used as perfumes but in a range of so-called 'functional products'. The washing liquid you use or the candle you burn at home are functional perfume products. The method to allow the scent to diffuse through another support than alcohol is different to making perfumes. some raw materials just do not work so what should you do if you have created a perfume and would like the shower gel or soap to match the scent as closely as possible? which ingredients should you use? This course will allow you to understand and apply scents to a range of functional products. it contains a great selection of formulas and recipes that will help you start applying scents to any product. It also covers the aspect of regulation when it comes to volatile compounds and rinse off products.
