Essential Oil Chemistry & Pharmacology: The Actions of Aromatic Compounds in the Body
2-Day Advanced Certificate (Tisserand Institute)
Saturday and Sunday, April 9-10, 2016– 9:00 am-4:30 pm
Boulder, Colorado
Instructor:  Robert Tisserand
This course is hosted by the International Journal of Professional Holistic Aromatherapy
Location:  Hyatt Place-Pearl Street/Boulder,* 2280 Junction Place, Boulder, CO
Class Description:
What happens when an essential oil is absorbed by the body via the skin, nose, or the mouth? How exactly do its constituent compounds exert their different effects and how does the body metabolize those compounds? What are the intrinsic factors that determine the difference between a therapeutic or toxic outcome?
 

Whether we speak holistic, clinical or medical Aromatherapy, the therapeutic foundation of each approach rests squarely on the pharmacology of essential oils; i.e. their biophysical actions in the body. Robert Tisserand has thoroughly researched and actively tracks the development of this science, making it accessible to both Aromatherapists and non-practitioners in this powerhouse of a seminar.
 

Do not miss this unique opportunity to enrich and transform your understanding of how Aromatherapy actually works (based on contemporary scientific evidence) and at the same time deepen your knowledge of several important facets of essential oils; from their biosynthesis in the plant, to their neuro-chemical effects in the brain, and above all their safe administration in professional-ethical practice.
Min/Max 30/70
Fee:  $449 (Early Bird rate $375 until 1/15/16) *Special hotel room rate if booked by March 8, 2016. Easy and affordable transportation between Denver International Airport and the hotel.
