Minnesota
Instructor: Jodi Baglien, CA, CST
Location: wisdom + well being studio, 221 1st Ave NE, Osseo, MN 55369
Upon completion of this course you will understand:

  • get recipes and create a pain blend to take home
  • Learn oil and hands on treatments you can immediately use to feel better, refresh the mind and balance overall energy.

This course is taught from a holistic approach and is easily applied to many care environments or for home use. Jodi offers a unique East-West approach to essential oil uses and techniques. You will have time for hands on learning and practice applying essential oils and creating a blend. It is highly recommended that you purchase the textbook The Complete Guide to Aromatherapy, 2004 (2nd edition), by Salvatore Battaglia, which is available from Jodi at class, or from major booksellers. Oils and supplies will be available for purchase at class at a 10% discount if desired – this is optional. Jodi Baglien is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a continuing education Approved Provider.

Aromatherapy Beginner Prep
Mondays, February 9th & 23rd 2015, 6:30-9:30pm
(2 part class, both nights required)
Minnesota
Beginner Prep class is a short version of the Foundations Certificate Course. Prep class covers most of the topics, but not as in depth as the full Foundations Weekend Course.
This class works best for those who wish to use oils personally and with family only. Consider the Level One Foundations Course if you are using oils professionally.
Learn the basic aromatherapy skills required to learn how to benefit from essential oil therapies. Gain the skills you need to take applications workshops! We cover how essential oils work in the body, safety guidelines, the quality of oils, what supplies you need on hand. Know how to effectively choose and apply essential oils for yourself, family. Learn how to prepare sprays, inhalers, massage oils, and use diffusers. If you are a therapist using essential oils on clients, or need CEU’s I would suggest the Foundations Certificate Course, offered 1-2 times per year at the Studio, or Normandale Community College. Class is open to all who want to begin their education in Aromatherapy.
This class covers:

  • essential oils – what, why and how they work
  • safety guidelines you NEED to know
  • basic application methods used in aromatherapy – how to make sprays, inhalers, and use a diffuser, make salts, topical blends and sprays.
  • answer your beginning questions about oils – quality, storage, uses – & prepare you with the skills and understanding needed for the level two applications workshops.

Prerequisite: None! Open to all

The Romance of Perfume
Saturday May 1st and Sunday May 2nd 2015
10:00am-6:00pm
Minnesota
Instructor: Kris Wrede, Kismet Potions
Location: wisdom + well being studio, 221 1st Ave NE, Osseo, MN 55369
Class description:
The Romance of Perfume is a sacred journey into the secret rituals of the art of perfumery…An adventurous journey that will stimulate your senses and whet your creative appetite. Prepare yourself for an expedition that will magically transport you into the ancient world of alchemy and fragrance.
Join perfumer and aromatic alchemist Kris Wrede for a hands-on 2 to 3 day perfume workshop that will elevate you to the ranks of an accomplished perfumer and blending expert. Kris’s teaching philosophy centers around the vision of perfumery as medicine, laying the foundation for therapeutic formulas of all dimensions. This venerable idea is steeped in history, which will be a major focus of the workshop.
The Romance of Perfume is taught on the philosophy that perfumery is the basis for learning any type of blending for all types of product development. The root of perfume is per-fumem, or “through smoke:” in Latin. Most ancient and some modern cultures believe that by offering their gods a scented prayer, that they were closer to heaven. Even the Greek philosopher Pliny believed that the olfactory bulb was the soul. They believed that in order to maintain this closeness to the divine that they (and their surroundings) had to smell magnificent all the time, even after death. That is why the ancient Egyptians filled their tombs with huge pots of oils and unguents, so they would safely make their way on fragrant clouds to the next life.
We will review materia medica for up to 75 essential oils and absolutes, focusing on their aesthetic, spiritual and emotional roles throughout the ages. Each participant will personally create a massage oil blend, three custom perfumes and one surprise blend. The knowledge that you acquire in this enriching seminar will prepare you for working with fragrance on many levels. Join us to expand your personal enrichment, to explore, enhance and enlighten.
