About the Teleseminar
Between 2000 and 2002, the speaker collected feedback-based information from a total of 75 women who agreed to use essential oil vitex agnus castus for menopausal problems. The information collected from these 75 unique experiences provided unprecedented insight into the efficacy and surprises associated with use of this very powerful essential oil.
Now, over ten years later, essential oil vitex is a standard in menopausal management. This presentation will revisit how it all started as well as a suggested protocol for prudent use.
Meet Barbara Lucks, RA
Barbara Lucks RA is a registered aromatherapist living in western Colorado. She has served as an aromatherapy educator and regional essential oil supplier since 1996. She is a charter member of the Lavender Association of Western Colorado.
Barbara received her initial aromatherapy certification from the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy in 1996, with subsequent study with the Pacific Institute (Kurt Schnaubelt) as well as Christoph Streicher, Jeanne Rose and Peter Holmes. She has provided essential oil education to her neighbors at community festivals and events, as well as teaching at local community colleges and massage schools.
Barbara started investigating the possible benefit of essential oil vitex agnus castus as part of her own menopausal management. Her own success prompted her to question whether other women might experience similar benefits. In posing the question, Barbara framed the feedback as a collection of individual stories...an anthology. The startling information received from the women who shared their stories is summarized in "The Vitex Anthology" which was first presented at the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy (PIA) Conference in 2000, with a subsequent survey-based study conducted and presented at PIA in 2002.
Barbara's seminal work has since been duplicated and refined by aromatherapists all over the world, with similar results.
