Two half day workshops:

Morning (10am – 1pm): The Medicinal Uses Of Essential Oils

In this workshop, we will explore the basics of aromatherapy, the biology of flowers and the science of fragrance. Topics covered will include: how essential oils work—their absorption and effects on the glandular, respiratory, nervous and circulatory systems; the best ways of using essential oils effectively (inhalation, baths, massage, etc.) and how to use them safely. We’ll also learn how to create a home pharmacy of important essential oils to address specific conditions and how to use them to calm the mind and body.

Cost: Members $45/ nonmembers $50


Afternoon (2:30 – 5:30): Sacred Scents

Join us for an afternoon of studying and sampling rare fragrant woods such as sandalwood, agarwood, cedar, and juniper; purifying resins such as frankincenses, myrrh and copal; intoxicating flowers such as roses, jasmines and saffron; and perfumed roots such as vetiver and jatamansi. We will learn the history, spiritual benefits and medicinal uses of some of the most powerful, exotic and renowned aromatic plants and sacred oils, including their applications for increasing concentration and memory, relaxation and meditation.

Cost: Members $45/ nonmembers $50
