Experience first-hand the joy of collecting plants for distillation at a small, boutique distillery in Sedona, Arizona. Clare and Max Licher, our hosts, are extremely knowledgeable about the Southwestern plants and their traditional usages.
An expert on plant taxonomy with an amazing, heart-centered connection to the local flora and fauna, Max will take us on a plant walk at Oak Creek Canyon outside Sedona where he will teach us about the properties and habitats of the native plants. Working in conjunction with local universities, Max has discovered several new species. Clare and Max both cultivate a deep reverence for the healing gifts that these plants have to offer us.
Costs include the workshop, day excursions, private guided tour of Antelope Canyon, ground transportation and the priceless and unique educational treasures that this experiential trip provides.
Most meals, lodging, and airfare to Phoenix are not included in the costs.
Trip insurance is encouraged. (Try World Nomads at www.worldnomads.com or Travel Guard.)

PROVENCE, FRANCE - coming soon!
Our journey to Sedona gives us a taste of American essential oils and the plants that produce them, while the trip to Provence provides all the flavor of the old country.
Once the harvest is complete and we have seen the local sites, we'll venture out into greater Provence to see the famous Pont du Gard bridge just east of Avignon (and its own famous bridge); St Remy, where a hospitalized Vincent Van Gogh painted some of his most well known paintings; the ruins of ancient Glanum, the heart of the Roman Province; the hilltown of Grasse, also known as "the perfume capital of the world"; and beautiful, Italianate, Nice on the Cote d'Azur. (We may even have time to soak up a little sun on one of the Mediterranean beaches.)
