This weekend with leading aromatherapist David Crow will offer an in-depth training on the therapeutic uses of essential oils and the principles and practice of Aromatherapy. We will begin Friday evening by exploring how essential oils work (their absorption and effects on the glandular, respiratory, nervous and circulatory systems); the best ways to use essential oils safely and effectively (inhalation, baths, massage, etc.); the different therapeutic categories of essential oils; and how to build a home pharmacy stocked with the most important oils to help address common health needs.
On Saturday we’ll explore the most important anti-microbial and immune-enhancing essential oils and aromatic herbs and how to use them to build our resistance and address infections, as well as how to identify the best oils to use for atmospheric purification and respiratory conditions. Sunday we’ll delve into some more subtle aspects of essential oil use, exploring the long history of the most renowned aromatic treasures used for ceremony, ritual and spiritual benefits. We’ll look at: how frankincense, sandalwood, agarwood and palo santo can enhance concentration, memory, relaxation and meditation; the mood-elevating, anti-inflammatory and skin healing properties of medicinal flower oils such as lavender, geranium and helichrysum; and the many wondrous uses of exalted perfume oils such as rose, jasmine, lotus and champa for enhancing health and happiness.
Note: A certificate of completion from Floracopeia will be given upon completion of the training.
Note: This workshop can be of great use both to individuals who want to use Aromatherapy in their personal lives and to a wide range of healthcare professionals from holistic physicians and nurses to bodyworkers and therapists.
