Introduction to Aromatherapy & Essential Oils in Practice
October 24 & 25, 2009 Clayton, Georgia
Join aromatherapy consultant and retired neuropsychologist Joie Power, Ph.D. for an in-depth seminar that provides a solid foundation in the basic practices of aromatherapy and the use of essential oils. The seminar combines solid scientific data, practical clinical techniques and a holistic approach that honors body, mind, and spirit.
Day One: Introduction to Aromatherapy. Saturday, October 24, 2009, 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM
The day begins with an overview of aromatherapy and its place in modern herbalism followed by an easy-to-understand explanation of the physiological actions of essential oils, with an emphasis on their effect on the central nervous system. We’ll look at practical methods for using essential oils including a comparison of the effectiveness of internal vs. external use (you’ll be surprised!) and step-by-step guidelines for safe and effective external use. You’ll learn how essential oils act on viral and bacterial infections, pain, inflammation, emotional distress and other conditions. The day ends with an in-depth discussion of some of the most versatile essential oils including lavender, rosemary, eucalyptus, tea tree, peppermint, thyme and chamomile.
Day Two: Essential Oils in Practice. Sunday, October 25, 2009, 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM
Day two is devoted to an in-depth presentation and discussion of more than ten essential oils with a wide range of applications for common health issues. Drawing from her 20-plus years of study and practice, Dr. Power shares priceless information about how these essential oils are used in medical settings. Oils to be discussed include bergamot, frankincense, sweet orange, geranium, sandalwood, cedarwood, clary sage, ylang-ylang and others.
The schedule on both days provides plenty of time for discussion, answering questions, and general sharing of ideas and experiences. Extensive handouts will be provided and essential oils will be available to sample and purchase.
