Most of us know that essential oils offer an array of wonderful natural aromas; but did you know they are also powerful plant medicines that can be used for treating almost all physiological body systems? Scientific studies at hospitals and universities around the world have shown that essential oils contain therapeutic properties, including analgesic, antibacterial, antiseptic anti-infectious, anti-inflammative, antiviral, decongestant, nerve sedative, digestive stimulant, and so on.
The focus of this class is the “First Aid Kit,” which contains five of the most common and most versatile essential oils -‐ Eucalyptus, Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint and Tea Tree. The First Aid Kit is designed for home and travel and is useful for treating the symptoms of minor common ailments such as colds, indigestion, stress, anxiety, insect bites, and much more. This class will show you how to use essential oils effectively and safely for health and beauty.
The workshop is led by Robert Berryman, a certified aromatherapist and owner of Zyanya Aromatherapy of Echo Park. For the past 15 years, Robert has created formulations for Burke Williams Spa, Murad Spa, Pritikin Spa, as well as individuals and a host of aromatic businesses.
