You will learn the traditional inhalation of the oils (not application on the body), how to make a spray and simple home uses (such as baths, massage oils, simple diffusing techniques). Participants will experience the healing power of essential oils during the session, will make their own aromatherapy eye pillow, and will also be given essential oil samples to take home.
