Aromatherapy has been around since the beginning of time. It has been suggested that God was the first aromatherapist with the creation of the Garden of Eden! This workshop will explore the plants and flowers that are distilled to make Essential Oils used in Aromatherapy.
We will also spend time looking at the history of Essential Oils and the geographical areas where many of these plants grow. We will look at some of the Ancient Oils and how they were used in sacred rites and worship and discuss how we can incorporate them today into our own spiritual practices.
Finally, a portion of the workshop will be spent with a hands-on activity designed to allow you to create your own personal Aromatherapy product to take home with you.
