05/15/2020, Cromwell - Making “Scents” of Aromatherapy: Essential Oils Basics for Healthcare, Home & Self-Care
Essential oils are everywhere! Yet, most of us have limited knowledge of how to safely and effectively harness the healing magic of these amazing extracts. Understand how to easily and safely create your own essential oil products to effectively address common problems such as muscle pain, inflammation, burns, acne, common cold symptoms and more. Learn the facts that are vital to working safely and successfully with essential oils. This class will cover general basics including safety guidelines and dilution formulas for healthy adults, pregnant women, elders and chronically ill folks. Dilution deals with how much essential oil safely dilutes into a quantity of carrier to create a product that has therapeutic value, is nontoxic for the person in question and effective for the circumstances being addressed. Students will also learn dilution guidelines for situations such as injury, accident and trauma and in what limited circumstances essential oils can be applied without dilution. The class ends with hands-on practice in which students have the opportunity to use aromatherapy supplies provided to make and take a product home.
What sets this class apart from other aromatherapy trainings? Aromatherapy is an unregulated field: anyone can practice or teach, regardless of their level of training. Hallie is Nationally Certified in Holistic Aromatherapy, has been practicing as a certified aromatherapist since 2002 and pursuing a clinical aromatherapy path since 2005. She taught the essential oil curriculum at Finger Lakes School of Massage for 10 years and her classes are approved for continuing education credit through both the New York State Board of Continuing Education and the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork.
