Essential Oils

Ref: C2342740

Essential oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits. More modern holistic approaches to wellness have brought about a revival of essential oils for physical and emotional health and well-being applications. Initially, you will be introduced the principles of 'Nature's Medicine Cabinet' using 10 core essential oils. Following research and discussion, you will address how the oils can be used for areas such as: relaxation and sleep, stress relief, concentration, immune system support, emotional balance, skin care, respiratory health, green cleaning, and even muscle tension and pain. You will have the opportunity to blend your own rollerballs. Make some 'green' cleaning products. Learn simple application techniques and discuss oils to support the emotions. An interesting class for anyone interested in learning about the basics of pure essential oils.
