Aromatherapy Class Series

In conjunction with the Celebration Library Summer Reading Series

I am pleased to announce a new series of EIGHT FREE CLASSES that I am presenting in conjunction with the Celebration Library!  Thank you to Jennifer for all of your help in bringing this to fruition!

We are still determining the actual format for some of the classes but the dates/topics will be as follows:

  • June 11 – Green Cleaning
  • June 18 – Muscle Rub
  • June 25 – Bug Repellent
  • July 2 – Hand Sanitizer
  • July 9 – 12 Oils of Ancient Scripture
  • July 16 – Gentle Baby
  • July 23 – Treat the Skin
  • July 30 – Stress Relief

All classes will offer a PowerPoint presentation and loads of opportunities to experience the healing nature of aromatherapy.  Other fun things to look for are demos, raffles, colorful handouts, and chair massages!

Additionally I will be completing my Infant Massage Certification this summer and will be adding a baby massage segment to the “Gentle Baby” class.  Due to the nature of the presentation, please do not bring children at this time.  HOWEVER, if there is interest in a future baby massage class, please let me know and I may be able to coordinate with the library staff on that.

All classes are held on WEDNESDAYs in June and July
Classes will start at 7:00PM.
They are free to the public.

I hope to see you there!!

Food Affects Body Odor

Just as certain foods can make you feel better or worse, there are foods that can make you smell better or worse!

Dr. Sanjay Gupta recommends a combination of magnesium, Vitamin A and zinc for a fresher smell. Dark leafy greens, carrots and tuna make a great smell-good combination.

Foods to avoid?  Cabbage, peas, red meat, eggs, soy.

Did you know that lemons were introduced to the Americas in 1493 by Christopher Columbus given to sailors to treat scurvy and other vitamin deficiencies?

Diffused, lemon essential oil stimulates memory.

Topically, it strengthens nails, removes sticky stuff, and repels bugs.

Ingested, lemon essential oil is a good source of d-limonene (powerful antioxidant) helping to detoxify the liver and stomach.  This has been extensively studied for its ability to combat tumor growth in over 50 clinical studies.

I love adding a few drops of lemon essential oil to homemade lemonade for an extra lemony taste.

The Body and Enzymes

Enzymes are a special protein produced by living organisms and composed of amino acids. They are catalysts enabling many essential biochemical reactions in our bodies.  Without them we could not function.

Enzymes are not ‘consumed’ in the daily body processes but rather are like supervisors.  Without their supervision work would not be accomplished.  Enzymes have to build up in the body in order to function.  Without build-up some metabolic processes happen very slowly or not at all.

Every biochemical function of the body requires enzymes to facilitate the building of compounds, unlocking nutrients, and breaking down substances such as food, toxins, and chemical wastes in the body. So, when enzymes are disrupted, our bodies lose their ability to function properly.  Enzyme disruptors and destroyers include Ibuprofen, Tylenol, and antibiotics; chemotherapy or radiation therapy; and microwave cooking.

Applying, tasting, or smelling essential oils stimulate the production of certain enzymes in your body.  You may not be able to see the enzymes in essential oils under a microscope but think about this:  It takes a sperm and an egg to make a child.  After that child is conceived and begins to grow, you can’t find the sperm or egg, but they were there and their influence continues. The plant enzymes, the blueprints of their energetic signatures, are in the oil
