 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

Safety and Ethics of Undiluted Oils

In the last 20 years aromatherapy has spread its influence to the household, toiletries and personal care areas: consumer products claiming to relax or invigorate our psyche’s have invaded our bathrooms, kitchen and living room areas. The numbers of therapists using essential oils in Europe and the USA has grown from a handful in the early 1980’s to thousands now worldwide. We have had time to add to our bank of knowledge on essential oils from reflecting on many decades of aromatherapeutic development and history, the collection of
anecdotal information from practicing therapists, as well as from clinical & scientific investigations. We have also had enough time to consider the risks in employing essential oils in therapy. In the last twenty years, many more people have had accidents, been ‘burnt’, developed rashes, become allergic, and become sensitized to our beloved tools. Why is this?

What to Expect from Your First Aromatherapy Consulation

When choosing an Aromatherapists, it is important to consider their education. experience. and philosophy of care. Working with an Aromatherapist is similar to working with other Holistic Healthcare Providers. The more information they have about your health background, the better the practitioner can advise you.

Taking a healthy history covering basic information about chronic and acute healthy conditions, allergies and current medications in included in the first visit.

Depending on the Aromatherapist's background and training, the therapist may also assess your emotional needs and energetic systems. The therapist will advise you as to which oils best fit your needs and how to use them to their fullest potential.

The Aromatherapist skillfully blends together selected oils, synergistically combining them to enhance desired properties and aroma. A follow up visit is important to discuss your response and progress with your therapist, in case any changes are needed in your plan.
