The Franklin Institute of Wellness Summer Workshop Series is an 8-part educational adventure diving deep into the practical applications of herbs and essential oils with scientific evidence as our guide. Practically, this means that you’ll get hands-on experience replicating formulas from clinical trials, so you can be sure they actually deliver results! You can register for the workshops in this series individually or save with a season pass.
On Monday of each week during June and July, you will enjoy 2 classroom-based (ONLINE) educational classes and a full hour of laboratory projects, complete with product formulas and demonstrations, for a total of nearly 3 hours of learning.
Registration includes online replay access (available the same day of the event) and a handout of the formulas demonstrated in the laboratory session. Deluxe Season passes also include all of the sessions on a convenient flash drive so that you can learn on-the-go without needing to be tethered to internet access.
Season passes are ONLY available through Friday, June 1, so be sure to grab yours today!
