 Topic: Easing Anxiety in Institutional Settings


 March 20, 2013


 About the Teleseminar

Anytime one is taken out of their familiar settings they experience some level of stress. Apprehension of the unknown, even if the change is voluntary, is quite common. When the transition is thrust upon one, extreme anxiety frequently sets in. It doesn't matter if the move is to a nursing home, a center for those with dementia, a rehab center, or a jail - the response is usually the same.

There are many essential oils and blends that can address anxiety. We will be discussing some of the more common oils and the blends we have made and have used in more unusual situations

Lia Whitmore Topic:   Aspergers Autism and Aromatherapy

  Our Presenter:   Lia Whitmore, CA

  About the Teleseminar:

Asperger’s is a form of autism that presents unique challenges and opportunities to those of us in aromatherapy. I am hoping to educate others about Aspergers and its unique challenges and the gifts that come with it, as well as present creative alternatives to using oils with the sensory challenges that are often present in Aspergers clients.

  • Teleseminar Topic: Essential Oils for Respiratory Health


  • Our Presenter: Liz Fulcher, RA, Clinical Aromatherapist, Essential Oil Educator

If there’s one thing every aromatherapist knows about essential oils, it’s their powerful affinity with our respiratory system. But do you know which essential oils have the greatest impact on illness of the lungs, throat and sinuses?   click here for more information

General Antiseptic Mist Spray

Anyone who uses essential oils once will continue to explore them and will discover the diverse aspects of natural, aromatic essences – relaxation, stress reduction, immune strengthening, preventive cures, personal hygiene, and other steps on the way to healing and staying healthy. Aromatherapy supports a healthy immune system. Some essential oils contain chemical constituents which are called tannins. Tannins provide immune-boosting benefits to the physical body. For humans and animals alike, essential oils are powerfully antiseptic, detoxifying and revitalizing, thus increasing resistance to disease while strengthening the immune system.
