Working with Essential Oils:

Aromatherapy for Beginners

Monday, January 28th • CLICK HERE TO REGISTER 


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!

All supplies included.

You want to use essential oils at home, both for yourself and your loved ones, but are not sure how to do this safely?

understand and I can help.  

My workshops take you step-by-step through the wonderful world of aromatherapy starting with understanding how to read a label.  We discuss the various safety issues around using these potent oils and what are recommended best practices for different age groups and health conditions.

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.
