Upcoming Aromatherapy Workshop with the UGDSB

I am teaching 3 Aroma•Education Workshops in Fall 2018 with the Upper Grand District School Board Continuing Education

For the love of Lavender!

Level: General Interest
Date: Monday, September 17th
Time: 7-9 p.m.
1 Class

Lavender is a distinctive and recognizable plant and its scent profile as an essential oil is also widely appreciated and recognized. But did you know that lavender grows in different countries?  As a plant, lavender relies on nature for its growth & survival. Lavender grown, harvested and distilled in France will have a very different scent-profile than one from Ontario, for example.

In this 2-hour workshop we will ‘sniff test’ four different lavender essential oils (countries of origin include France, South Africa, and Ontario) and discuss the safety use profile of lavender essential oil in general. You will also be introduced to a gentle yet powerful aromatherapy tool – the hydrosol.  You will receive hands-on blending training and create a customized blend safe for topical use.

Workshop Kit includes:a 5 ml bottle of your choice of one lavender essential oil; a glass roll-on bottle for creating a diluted blend safe for topical use; a 30 ml carrier oil that is used with the glass roll-ons; a bottle of lavender hydrosol; and safety literature and profile for lavender essential oil and hydrosol. A $39 workshop kit fee is payable at the first class.

Confused by all the information out there about essential oils? Do you wonder if you are using them both effectively & safely?  Learn about essential oils that support you and your immune system during the cold and flu season from a certified aromatherapist (with the Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists).  This 2.5-hour workshop covers safety use profiles for eucalyptus globulus, eucalyptus radiata, lavandin grosso and lemon. You will receive hands-on blending training.
