Instructor: Irena Stathis

The ritual of caring for the hair and scalp is incredibly important as it is the area of the body that houses the mind. Cleansing the hair and conditioning the scalp with infused botanical oils and floral waters rejuvenates the mind, filling one up with the healing frequencies of the plants’ aromatics. This holistic practice softens the hair and supports the flow and movement of nutrition and cleansing for the scalp via the circulation, calming and strengthening the mind. We will discuss various techniques for infusing and blending botanicals for hair rinses, conditioners, and massage oils.

Come discover the many floral and verdant botanicals that benefit the hair and learn how to include them in your own home routine!

A Zoom link will be emailed to registered participants 24 hours before class begins. For questions, email the Education Department at education@arboretum.org.


Irena Cora Stathis is an Herbalist and Educator specializing in self-care, natural beauty, herbal foods and preventative wellness. She handcrafts botanical beauty products, hydrosols, herbal teas, extracts, essences, and balms from the plants in her garden and those that she carefully tends in the wild. She teaches workshops on the Art and Craft of Herbalism at the Los Angeles County Arboretum in Arcadia and she will be offering new classes online this year as well as some limited attendance, outdoor plant explorations.

Last year, she founded the Flowering Earth School of Herbalism with a 10-month Immersion, a hands-on, experiential-based program which explores the many pathways of healing with plant medicines via our own personal connection to the plants and the Earth.

To find out more about her workshops and future offerings, follow her on Facebook: Abalone Herbals, Instagram: @abaloneherbals or you can email her at abaloneherbals@gmail.com.

Irena is ever grateful to her teachers, mentors and friends who have generously shared their vast knowledge and understanding with her and many others, for all the people who came before and have passed down their teachings and traditions, and to the beautiful, wild, and selfless beings who offer up their healing wisdom and medicine, the plants themselves.
