Energetic Aromatherapy
Description: Essential oils have become increasingly popular, but many people only memorize uses for individual oils and do not understand the energetic categories of fragrance. Just like herbal energetics helps us to select herbal remedies more effectively, understanding the energetics of aroma helps us use essential oils with greater efficiency and flexibility.
In this comprehensive course on aromatherapy we’ll discuss what aromatherapy is, techniques for using essential oils safely and effectively, and then introduce you the concept of energetic aromatherapy. We’ll cover sympathetic and parasympathetic effects and discuss eight aromatic actions related to the Western four element model (air, water, fire, and earth). These eight actions are ethereal, refreshing, stimulating, invigorating, grounding, sultry, soothing, and calming.
We’ll also discuss two fragrance qualities associated with each of these actions, making a total of sixteen basic fragrances. These are fresh, herbaceous, minty, vapors, camphor, sulfuric, spicy, sharp, resinous, woody, balsamic, musky, sweet, earth, fruity, and floral.  We’ll spend the bulk of the class discussing individual essential oils within these eight actions and sixteen qualities. We encourage you to get some of your essential oils out and “smell along with us,’ so that you can better understand these categories of remedies as we discuss them.
We’ll wrap up the class with some practical applications of what we’ve learned. We’ll cover various therapeutic uses for the various categories of oils, such as wound healing, fighting infection, easing respiratory congestion, settling the stomach, and aiding sleep. We’ll also cover household uses for essential oils for disinfecting, deodorizing, freshening the air, repelling insects, as well as hair and skin care. We’ll end with how to use essential oils to aid emotional healing, helping to alter one’s mood and deal with problems like irritability, anxiety, grief, and depression.
Don’t miss this opportunity to gain a unique perspective on aromatherapy with a lot of practical applications from two of America’s top herbalists.
