Webinar: Essential Oil Blending for Body, Mind, and Spirit

Anne Williams

You can make blends of essential oils to improve your massage session outcomes. It’s been proven by research. But how do you get a combination of essential oils to smell good, demonstrate therapeutic effect, enhance outcomes, and not be so strong as to cause adverse reactions? Is it really possible to create formulas that influence emotions or change behavioral patterns? Is there an aromatherapy blend that can speak directly to the spirit? In this class, you’ll discover the answers to these questions and learn practical skills to create essential oil synergies with physiological, psychological, and spiritual effects.
