Scientific Aromatherapy for Year-round Wellness!

Time: Friday Oct 5th from 3:30PM to 5:00PM

Location: Mt. Hood

Speaker(s): Amy Pereira

While nothing replaces nourishing diet, adequate physical activity, healthy sleep, etc., organic essential oils, hydrosols & virgin plant oils can play amazing roles in supporting the many systems of the body (circulatory, immune, integumentary, musculoskeletal, respiratory, nervous, and more!) and can be a beautiful and integral part of your health and wellness goals.

In this workshop, we’ll explore important topics such as:

  • What essential oils are and why plants make them.
  • How essential oils are “made” (expression, steam/hydro distillation, CO2 etc.)
  • How organic farming impacts essential oil chemistry and why organic matters
  • Roles that essential oils & virgin plant oils play in French Medical/Scientific Aromatherapy.
  • Which essential oils may be used neatly/undiluted (and how to properly and safely dilute ones which may not)
  • Why premixed Wellness Blends may be best for eco-friendly DIY Hand Sanitizers, Cleaning Products & Body Care Projects
  • Which, if any, essential oils may be used for internal/culinary purposes (and navigating that conversation with customers).
  • Ways in which essential oils help fortify circulatory, skin, and immune system health, as well as overall well-being.
  • Ways to use hydrosols & virgin plant oils to support skin/body hydration, create protective moisturizing barriers against the elements, & keep you healthily up & running!

Each attendee will receive a small sample of their own custom creation as well as take-home recipe ideas & a wealth of additional info to help increase awareness around safe & effective use of essential oils, hydrosols & virgin plant oils!
