Enhancing your Ability to Safely and Effectively Use Essential Oils

Essential oils are popping up everywhere from pharmacies to Amazon to Walmart to expensive spas and medical offices. Prices vary considerably as does quality. High quality essential oils can be a wonderful, effective and primarily safe form of non-toxic, self-care for you and your family. But they are very potent. Have you ever been taught safety guidelines for using them? Do you wonder if you can take them internally or not? And if so, which ones and in what ways? Are you afraid to diffuse oils around your pets, your babies, your husband with asthma? To use them while pregnant or breastfeeding? Do you know how to tell if your oils are pure and therapeutic grade? Are you aware of which oils are hot, which one shouldn’t be used in the sun or how and when to safely dilute oils? If you harbor any of these questions, you are not alone. In this 2-part non-brand-related essential oil class, you will learn what essential oils really are, why they are so powerful, and how to use them safely.

Part 1 (October 30th) we will address the overall safe use of essential oils. You will learn

  • What essential oils actually are

  • How to identify a safe, therapeutic grade essential oil- and why that is so important

  • Safe ways to store, dilute, blend and apply essential oils

  • General dilution guidelines

  • How frequently we can use or take essential oils

  • The old “oil & water don’t mix” dilemma and what to do about it

 

Part 2 (November 6th) we will explore essential oil safety considerations for specific circumstances including:

  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding

  • Injuries and wounds 

  • Using oils around (and for) pets

  • Infants and Children

  • The elderly and sick

  • Phototoxicity
