Welcome Welcome to Scentsibilities, Herbal Education & Apothecary, located at 750 Main Street, Boylston, MA. Yes, we have changed! The retail store closed at the end of 2012 and is no longer be open for retail operation.
We have not gone away however and are as busy as ever. The focus of the store is now on education and the herbal apprenticeship and workshops are continuing. During 2013 we had a number of new offerings as we expand our teaching to bring as many people as possible in to the "world of herbs". Workshops are now completed for the year and will start up again in March or 2014.
We are still selling dried herbs and teas as part of the education offerings and you may order by phone or email. See the Product Ordering section for more information.
Thank you to all our dedicated customers over the last 10 years who have made the store such a success and joyful place to work.
Aromatherapy Certification Class
The European Aromatherapy Level I and II Certification classes taught by Linda Patterson has been scheduled for 2014. We are very fortunate to have Linda teaching in this area and these fantastic classes delving into the world of aromatherapy. Space is limited in both classes so register early. If you have taken Linda's Level I class at any time, or at a different location, you can sign up for Level II. See the Aromatherapy Workshop section of the website for detailed information on both classes.
Visit My Blog I set up a blog when I realized I can't include everything in the monthly newsletter and people seem interested in my herbal "doings". I've had some starts and stops but hope you will check it out. I find it is a great medium for posting pictures and updates of my new herb garden, sharing recipes, and talking about all things herbal. My first entry was about my elder flower adventure to pick some elder flowers to make a non-alcoholic elder flower cordial and making St Johns Wort oil. See my recent entries about lemon balm and harvesting elderberries.
You can also find a writeup on Herb Companion Planting and entries about my Summer garden visits and also about hops harvesting. Last Fall I wrote about planting garlic and also updated the garden progress. So follow along and feel free to add comments. You can find my blog athttp://scentsibilities.blogspot.com/

About Us At Scentsibilities, the focus is on herbal plants and products. Opened right before Christmas 2002 by herbalist Linda Russell, the store consisted of a small selection of dried herbs, essential oils, herbal teas and candles. How we grew over 10 years! At the begining of 2013 the retail store closed as we focus on education and providing an herbal apothecary of herbs and teas. Education in the form of workshops and an herbal apprenticeship are offered throughout the year also and we are always looking for new topics so if you have an interest, please let us know.
