Easing Anxiety & Dispelling the Blues – Get Happy & Inspired with Essential Oils

June 18, 2022 (Saturday) 2:00 pm-5:00 pm


Essential oils can have a profound effect on mood and cognitive ability through their direct connection with the limbic system of the brain – the seat of memory, impulse, and emotions. Explore which oils are most effective for cognitive enhancement, offer inspiration and motivation, and help ease anxiety and depression in safe, nurturing applications.  You will then apply your new knowledge of essential oils in a hands-on portion of the class, making your own aromatherapy blends specific to your individual emotional health.  (3 hours)

Learning natural methods to serve me and my family – to help with depression, anxiety and focus.  I felt safe with Holly – that she KNOWS the science and safety measures.
