Chareau + Bertoux: Self-Care Through Henna

We will be working with Sabreena Haque, one of the leading Henna artists in the world . We are excited to have her teach us all about Henna and what it represents. See below for information about Henna:

The Art of Henna has been used by desert cultures throughout the Middle East, Africa, India, and Egypt for thousands of years. It continues to expand and become a creative expression and self care ritual for people of all walks of life.

It is ALL natural! Made from dried and crushed up henna leaves (Lawsonia inermis), lemon juice, sugar and essential oils.

Some people use it is a spiritual tool. They set intentions and the artist can weave symbols to serve as a reminder. As the henna fades, so the intention deepens.

Also, the sweet and minty smell of the henna serves as an aphrodisiac, a time to relax and take time for self. Waiting for the henna to dry, teaches people patience and grace, a moment to unwind and be present.

Henna symbolizes joy, beauty, protection, and good fortune for those who wear it.

Flowers represent happiness and joy.

Vines represent devotion and vitality.

Eyes serve as a form of protection and warding the evil eye.

The lotus is a symbol of rebirth and resilience, it blossoms in murky waters; emerging from adversity.

Peacock represents confidence and courage.

#calmtfdown: Essential Oil Essentials for Barkeeps

For the month of November, Jigger + Dash will be focusing on self care! I'm bringing back my essential oil blending class that we had in the beginning of the year and that I taught at Portland Cocktail Week. 
Essential oils are proven to assist with things like fatigue, inflammation and circulation just to name a few. As Industry professionals, we need to take steps toward taking care of ourselves. Essential oils are strong and potent so they need a type of carrier oil, like coconut or avocado oil to dilute it's strength. We will talk about various carrier oils and what works best for different skin types. By the end of class, you will have the opportunity to choose a carrier oil that best suits their skin type and infuse the oil with a blend to #calmtfdown or #waketfup!

There will be healthy food and No ABV drinks!
