with Christa van Green
Would you like to discover the therapeutic and relaxing benefits of aromatherapy essential oils and learn how to sample and blend your own products to use at home?
This one-day course has been created by aromatherapist Christa van Green, to introduce you to aromatherapy, its many health benefits and to help you feel more confident in using them safely and effectively on yourself, your friends and family.
After a delicious vegetarian lunch, you will learn how to create your own massage oil (50ml) for relaxation, aching muscles or tired feet and to blend your own shampoo (250ml), using Organic base products and pure essential oils.
To close the session, we will give and receive a basic hand massage, using the oils made earlier in the day.
Aromatherapy is a healing treatment using the essential oils from trees, flowers, spices, herbs, grasses, resins and roots that have therapeutic properties.
Fragrant essential oils enter and leave the body via inhalation, bathing, therapeutic massage, or by compress, without leaving any residue or toxins behind. Once in the body the oils can influence the physical and emotional condition of the person being treated.
This workshop is open to those interested in or new to aromatherapy as well as bodyworkers and therapists who are interested in learning more about these wonderful essential oils.
As we are working with pure essential oils, this workshop is not recommended if you are pregnant.
All materials and light lunch are included. Please be aware the information on this course is intended for your own use with family and friends only.
Please wear casual clothes and you are welcome to bring warm socks or slippers, as our studio is a shoe free zone.
