This elective is designed to enhance your knowledge of the use and application of essential oils. As you learn the basic theories of working with essential oils—with emphasis on their properties, use, and contraindications—you will also learn about the structure of the plants, explore recent studies, and examine historical and current applications. As we journey into the essence and nature of the plant, you will deepen your understanding of its blueprint and spirit and begin to recognize its unique harmonic signature. This class will expand your knowledge of botany, anatomy and the physiology of the human olfactory system, as well as reveal insight into the inner relationships between humans and plants. You will also learn how essential oils are made and have an opportunity to create your own unique harmonic blend.
This course was developed and is taught by Acutonics Senior Faculty Member Judy Bernard, MA, LAc.
