Smell Amazing. Feel Great.

That's what living an aromatherapy lifestyle is all about.

Bug Off! • Workshop

Bugs buggin’ you?  Worried about toxicity levels in synthetic bug sprays? Find out how essential oils can help.

Book this class as a private workshop.  You and 4 of your friends choose the day and time and get me all to yourselves! 

Email ljturtlearomatherapy at for details.

I am now accepting students for this 2-hour workshop that covers safety use profiles and hands-on blending training.

This workshop covers safety use profiles for four essential oils known for their anti-bug properties. You will learn how to ‘build-a-blend’ and create an all-natural, aromatherapeutic spray that is safe for use on the skin.

Your Workshop Kit Includes: a 5 ml bottle of each essential oil covered in this class (four) and a 100 ml bottle of my proprietary water-based spray (you will add your customized essential oil blend to a pre-blended base).  You will also receive an empty 5 ml amber bottle for creating an undiluted blend suitable for diffusing.

You will go home with a customized blend for diffusing and one safe for topical use; and enough ingredients and bottles to practice your new skills and knowledge at home.  You will also go home with LJ Turtle ‘Build-a-Blend’ worksheets and educational & safety literature about each essential oil covered in this class.  Safety first & always.

The value of the workshop kit on its own is $58.25 + HST.  For less than the cost of the kit, you get the full attention of a Certified Aromatologist Professional with the Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists.  Feel confident learning from someone with academic credentials.

Investment: $48.75 + HST • Includes your Workshop Kit (valued at $58.25 + HST)

The products, which are diffused, used on the skin and even added to food and drink, are up to 70 times the strength of the plant they’re derived from.

Please also read the article as it has additional important information not in the news clip.

What those trained in the field already know:

• avoid using essential oils undiluted on the skin or at high concentration levels

• do not ingest essential oils

• pay attention to your daily accumulated use. If you’re diffusing, applying topically throughout the day you may experience adverse side-effects

• verify the qualifications of the person you are dealing with
