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)

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
