Do you have a ‘nice collection’ of essential oils at home, but that’s all it is, a ‘nice collection’ — because you aren’t really sure how to best use them, or how to make better use of them? In other words, you don’t use them for any purpose other then as ‘perfume’ and you don’t use them as much as you’d like, or should! Or maybe you are intrigued by this thing called ‘aromatherapy’ and want to learn more? Well then this is the perfect class for you!
Here is where you get to ask the questions you’ve always wanted to ask (and maybe hear some questions that you didn’t know you should be asking about essential oils!). A clinical aromatherapist, certified and trained with the Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists is here to answer and help you explore the multifaceted world of essential oils.
Here’s what we’ll cover in this class:
Learn to evaluate essential oil quality and what to look for on the label
Learn about different methods of use (e.g. diffusing, topical use, bath salts, etc. )
Learn why we don’t ingest essential oils
Find out why one (1) drop can be enough
Learn why blending is necessary when using essential oils on your skin
Learn the basics of blending
There will be a lot of ‘sniff testing’ and a hands-on blending portion to this class. You will make & take a customized blend!

Aromatherapy Lifestyle Blends: Choose from 3 of my most popular lifestyle blends. Joysupports a cheerful outlook, invigorates and uplifts our thinking and thought patterns. Winter Solsticeis one of my ‘change of season blends’; use it to ‘warm’ you when it is chilly outside. And finally, use Four Thieves during the cold and flu season. It is also a great daytime blend to help you stay focused. These may be used with your diffuser jewelry or with a nebulizer.
Essential Oils: I’ll have a variety of single essential oils to choose from, for your DIY uses.
Smelly Dog Grooming Spray: Helps manage the smelliness of your best friend(s). This blend also doubles as a calming spray for anxious canines. My grooming spray is an effective, easy-to-use, all-natural alternative to conventional pet-store products. Piper was the black lab for which this spray gets its name (along with some help from an infamous Phoebe Buffay song).
Let Me Be • Bug Spray:Let Me Be is a powerful blend of essential oils that have been found to be effective in ‘deterring’ the plethora of insects warm weather brings. I call it an ‘outdoor meditation blend’ because it allows you to do just that – meditate in peace & calm, free of pests.
