10:30 – 11:30 am – Essential Oils Workshop

Essential oils and human beings have a great deal in common. We are both alive-chemically, electrically and in terms of infrared radiation. The chemical composition of DNA in plants and people is virtually the same. Plants and human both depend on a chelating chemical, which in humans is red heme (which transports the oxygen released from plants in the blood), and in plants it is chlorophyll.

The similar chemical composition between plants and humans may explain why essential oils seem to act like keys to our physical and mental mechanisms.

Learn what they are, their absolutes, how do essential oils get into the body and how oils work on the brain. We will also discuss how moodiness, mood swings, irritability and insomnia can be addressed with essential oils
