Managing and Understanding Large Numbers of Essential Oils

How to understand and use up to over 600 essential oils in blending for personal care, healing the physical, for spiritual practices, personal perfumes and in therapeutic formulations?


One of the most challenging aspects of aromatherapy is learning the hundreds of essential oils that are available worldwide, their genus, species and sub-species and the many countries of origin where aromatic plants are grown. If this is not enough you have to decide on what oils blend well together, dosages and the different blends that you are making either for the physical, emotional, mental, psychological, spiritual or energetic purposes. While this is a challenging subject to learn there are ways to simplify through the integration of specific ways of organizing the oils and the information.


This presentation will help you to see the subject of aromatherapy through an alternative viewpoint from someone who has over 30 years of experience, has formulated over 750 blends and personally trained over 30,000 students worldwide.
