Aromatherapy, the use of essential oils as healing agents, has a long history in many cultures. This course will provide an overview of the basics of aromatherapy and the wide range of aromatherapy techniques we can use in many aspects of our lives. We’ll work with oils derived from leaves, needles, flowers, and peels, including bergamot, rosemary, lavender, and pine. We’ll explore how these oils can affect the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels of our being and be combined with other healing modalities.
This class will give us a solid foundation in the practical application of oils, how to blend and diffuse them and use them safely and effectively to address conditions such as colds, anxiety, insomnia, and digestive issues. We’ll learn how to make compresses, essential oil sprays, self-healing blends and much more.
Note: A $15 materials fee is payable to the instructor.
