For the Love of Lavender! Aromatherapy Workshop

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.

Here’s what is in your workshop kit:
• 1 bottle of lavender essential oil
• 1 bottle of lavender hydrosol
• 1 DIY kit to make a custom roll-on
• Profile & safety literature

You take all of the above home with you along with a custom-made lavender roll-on!

Good Vibrations Diffuser Blend

LJ Turtle Good Vibrations Diffuser blend was originally blended for a Reiki wellness practitioner to use in between clients.  She felt the space needed ‘cleansing’ as one client was leaving and another was arriving.

Good Vibrations also reflects my Ojibwa heritage – I intentionally used Canadian Black Spruce and Sage to do the heavy cleansing work.

Allergy Relief

My roll-on blend works to alleviate the symptoms of seasonal allergies.

French Lavender is a natural and
 gentle antihistamine with anti-itch & anti-inflammatory properties.  Roman Chamomile has analgesic, anti-itch & antispasmodic properties also known to be anti-allergenic and gentle. These are blended in a base of jojoba carrier oil.  Gently apply a small amount to sinus area. Massage thoroughly into skin. Re-apply as needed.

As with all LJ Turtle Blends, Allergy Relief is:

  • natural & safe alternative
  • Locally handcrafted in small batches ensuring quality & freshness
  • Developed by a Certified Aromatherapist
  • Free of any fillers or synthetic ingredients
  • 100% biodegradable and plant-based
