The 3 Notes of EO's: Smell, Emotion and Chemistry

with Melani Kovac, Aromatherapist and Dropsmiths Founder

Melani devoted her last 10 years solely to promoting and teaching aromatherapy. To serve this purpose she’s founded Aromainstitut through which sheorganises and supports different aromatherapy projects, collaborates with colleagues, non-profit organisations, homes for the elderly, hospitals, universities and anyone who can benefit from aromatherapy or is hoping to incorporate aromatherapy in their work. Her IT background, curiosity as well as working as an educator for a very wide variety of students along with collaborating with distillers, sellers, nurses and scientists inspired her to create a global online platform for all essential oil users and sellers - Dropsmith. Her goal is to make aromatherapy simple, fun and as precise and safe as possible.

Before settling down with aromatherapy my path was quite colourful. I have studied both art and computer science as well as many other things but it is only my study of essential oils that never seems to end and keeps me curious. I will start this lesson with smell because it is exactly what got me attracted to this fine art in the first place and then we will explore its chemistry because it is the science that helps us understand what we are using and how to use it efficiently and safely. Then we will step back from the constituents to look at the whole picture to peace it back together taking into consideration the whole plant and its story.

In this webinar, I will share with you what I've noticed over the years with my holistic approach to essential oils. The patterns and clues I’ve noticed depending on the plant part that is distilled, the chemistry and the smell. For example, lemon and geranium are both found to be anxiolytic but when to use what? How is it different? I will reveal my experience and authentic approach to exploring how the smell, symbolism and chemistry of an essential oil might affect our body-mind experience.
