Aromatherapy Love Potions

Aromatherapy Love Potions

Published: February 05, 2019

For centuries, popular wisdom has suggested that love could be influenced by spells, rituals, and, yes, love potions. Created from herbs, insects, animal parts, and more, love potions demanded hard-to-obtain ingredients and seemed to depend as much on the creator’s desire as on the merit of the mixtures themselves.

This Valentine’s Day, the Library is making its own modern version of love potions – but ones that are decidedly more tame, not to mention better-smelling. If you’d like to put together your own intoxicating concoction, we’ll have a selection of aromatherapy scents that you’re welcome to mix and mingle until you hit on something you love.

The potions can be personalized for your valentine or jazzed up for yourself. It’s all up to your own preferences. Supplies will be provided, but advance registration is necessary, so please call 828.466.6821 to sign up. Adult assistance is required for children 8 and under who attend.

The workshop takes place at 4 pm on Thursday, February 14 at the St. Stephens Branch Library.
