Course Overview

When creating a Basic Care Kit, an oil for each physical system, as well as emotional balancing, mental balancing, and spiritual balancing was chosen. Realize that there are physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of most essential oils, and that each oil discussed can be used for many healing aspects. Essential oils have been chosen can give a simple starting place to begin working from, in order to introduce you to essential oils that span all aspects of healing. If two drops of the essential oil that is discussed for a particular system is used in a hot footbath, by itself, a healing effect will take place for that specific system. With each oil/system presented, there will be disorders that the particular oil can assist.

You will also delve into how the properties and the disorders are connected to determine the best course of healing with the essential oils. A part of this class is discussing the possible ways of using particular oils for a particular disorder. It is necessary to consider the appropriate method of application, drops, carrier, etc for each oil. Developing further connection between essential oils and the property/disorder connection creates a foundation for the healing process through the use of aromatherapy. This includes the thought process of using a single essential oil, or if appropriate to use a blend as well as what type of base for the particular condition is best to use.
