With Amy Anthony

Join Amy Anthony for this evening class in July to consider some of the fruits and flowers of aromatherapy; how many of the flower oils have an affinity for the skin and the heart (i.e., compassion) and how fruits, packed with nourishment and seeds, are often cleansing and purifying. July is an exceptional time to get out of the heat and sip on cooling rose water and relax in a learning environment filled with beautiful aromas!

Look forward to the following experiences during this 2 hour workshop:

  • A tisane experience where we smell, sip and discuss an infusion of flowers made at the beginning of class.

  • Reviewing key properties of fruits and flowers overall.

  • Learning about six select flower and fruit oils through guided olfactory meditations and discussing individual properties of those essential oils.

    • As a bonus, we’ll discuss photo-toxicity!

  • Creating your own aromatic spritzer with select hydrosols and your own blend of the essential oils covered in class!

After you leave the class, you will have built a deeper relationship with some of the aromatic flowers and fruits of aromatherapy so you may understand when it is a good time to call upon them to support you and loved ones.

Do you worry a lot? Do you struggle with trying to quiet your mind? Is stress taking up too much space in your life? We all feel stress and and its effects on our health and well-being. When it becomes overwhelming, essential oils can become our true allies. Not only do they provide relief, but they also can change the way we respond and navigate stress and what triggers it.

More and more research is showing that stress can negatively impact our health by manifesting illness, anxiety disorders, sleep issues and depression to name a few. Understanding our response to stressors reveals how stress manifests itself physically and sheds light on the ways in which we can better manage it.

The powerful and beautiful effect of essential oils can deeply shift how our body and mind responds to stress. In this three part series, we will explore how the aromas of the oils and their chemistry can make us feel better, happier and more relaxed.

Keeping Your Kids Healthy This Fall With Essential Oils

$95

Sunday, October 7th | 10:00 am - 2:00 pm EST

With Elisabeth 'Libby' Vlasic

Do you love essential oils, but do not know how to incorporate them into your family’s day-to-day life? Confused by all of the different information as to which essential oils are safe for children, and appropriate ways to use them? Join us for our “Keeping Your Kids Healthy This Fall” workshop where we will look at essential oils that are helpful for this time of the year, as well as simple & thoughtful ways to incorporate them into your dailies.

Fall is the time of leading into cooler days and longer nights, of leaves dropping with hibernation pending, and preparation for the winter and cold dark days ahead - we are once again transitioning and adjusting for what is to come. It is also a time where we return to routine after Summer has ended, that may be school, work or life as a stay-at-home-parent. Some may find this time unsettling and depressing, while other see it as a time to buckle down and focus.

Some of the most common concerns which resonate with Fall are;

  • Dry Skin, and Eczema/Psoriasis flare ups

  • Flu/Cold symptoms ex. Nasal congestion

  • Feeling down, unhappy and unmotivated

  • Support for transition & change ex. New class at school

  • Focus and mental clarity ex. Starting school again

  • Being exposed to germs ex. School days, and back on the subway

With this in mind we will look at essential oils that can help aid with these concerns, while combining these essential oils into products highlighted.

Additionally, we will design a custom Fall synergy blend which is safe for children, to diffuse throughout the home.

Connecting Energies: Aromatherapy and the Chakras

$150

Saturday, October 13th | 10:00 am - 4:00 pm EST

Good health is promoted when energy flows whereas stagnation promotes sluggishness and dis-ease. A core law of energy states: “Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It transforms from one form to another.” This experiential workshop presents a way for you to choose essential oils to work with your chakras in order to promote movement and balance—one of the great paradoxes of aromatics.

Look forward touching on the following throughout the workshop:

  • Participate in exercises to connect with each chakra

  • The electromagnetic field, sound waves & vibration

  • The neuro-endocrine system as it relates to the chakras and essential oils

  • The overall characteristics of essential oils as communicators of movement

  • A strategy for selecting essential oils across the chakras

At the end of the workshop you will create your own blend of essential oils to put into a roller ball applicator to take home with you and add to a clay bead or amulet you will make during one of the exercises!

With Amy Galper and Alison Marras

Join Alison Marras, Nutritional Therapist, Food Blogger & Photographer and Amy Galper, Co-Founder of the New York Institute of Aromatic Studies, as they co-present a very special evening workshop.

As women, we all go through periods of hormonal imbalance and it's so important to know how we can bounce back and get our bodies back into a more balanced state, naturally. There are many ways through our dietary, lifestyle, and self-care choices where we can strongly affect change at a root-cause level, versus just treating symptoms or feeling confused and lost when it comes to fixing it. Symptoms such as bloating, fatigue, irritability, hair changes/loss, mood swings, anxiety, weight gain, brain fog, fatigue/low energy, low libido, and infertility do not need to be permanent. 

Join us for an educational, hands-on workshop. New York Institute of Aromatic Studies is teaming up with Nutritionist, Alison Marras, NTC who helps her clients take control of their health by educating and empowering them with all things food and wellness! Together, we'll discuss the underlying causes of hormonal imbalances so we can simplify and demystify the complication and confusing jargon around it! We'll discuss the key issues that can go wrong, the causes, and most importantly -- how you can support your body back to stronger health through dietary and lifestyle changes. After that, there will be time for a Q&A, as well as a fun lesson on making your own hormone balancing essential oil to use as a part of your self-care routine.

Alison Marras is an NYC-based Nutritional Therapist, Food Blogger & Photographer over at foodbymars.com where she whips up healthy and delicious recipes. She is dedicated to enabling her audience to take control of their health in the kitchen. All recipes are all gluten-free, predominantly paleo (grain-free, dairy-free) with an emphasis on wholesome and seasonal ingredients. 

Living with Hashimoto's Autoimmune disease, Alison began her food blog after realizing the importance of food as medicine in helping her heal and in keeping symptoms under control. She combined her love of cooking with her health journey in creating recipes everyone can enjoy!

An Overview of Distilling and Aromatic Waters

An Overview of Distilling and Aromatic Waters

  • New York Institute of Aromatherapy (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

$80

Wednesday, July 18th | 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm EST

With Amy Anthony

By definition, aromatherapists use essential oils obtained via water or steam distillation. Distilling aromatic plant material with water gives us two gifts: an essential oil and a distillate (hydrosol). Hydrosols are the forever changed waters created through the distillation process. You may have heard of and already use rose water or orange blossom water—these are distillates and have been used for centuries for their gentle therapy.

Hydrosols can be made from aromatic and non-aromatic plants. This gives us a bridge between aromatherapy (using aromatics, specifically their essential oils) and herbalism (using aromatic and non-aromatic plants). Incorporating hydrosols into your life further expands your access to phyto-therapy.

Look forward to learning:

  • A high-level overview of the distillation process

  • A brief history of distillation and the aromatic waters

  • Benefits of using hydrosols

  • How to incorporate the hydrosols into your life/practice

Get hands-on!

  • Feel, taste and smell a selection of hydrosols at our “hydrosol bar”

  • Create your own blend of hydrosols from the hydrosol bar to take home with you in a spray bottle.

Leave the workshop feeling refreshed by the plant waters and with an expanded perspective on plant-therapy!

Connecting Energies: Aromatherapy and Chakras

$95

Saturday, March 17th | 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST

With Amy Anthony

Good health is promoted when energy flows whereas stagnation promotes sluggishness and dis-ease. A core law of energy states: “Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It transforms from one form to another.” This experiential workshop presents a way for you to choose essential oils to work with your chakras in order to promote movement and balance—one of the great paradoxes of aromatics.

Look forward touching on the following throughout the workshop:

  • Participate in exercises to connect with each chakra
  • The electromagnetic field, sound waves & vibration
  • The neuro-endocrine system as it relates to the chakras and essential oils
  • The overall characteristics of essential oils as communicators of movement
  • A strategy for selecting essential oils across the chakras

At the end of the workshop you will create your own blend of essential oils to put into a roller ball applicator to take home with you and add to a clay bead or amulet you will make during one of the exercises!

Also available via Live Streaming.

Saturday, March 3rd - Monday, March 5th | 9:30 am - 5:30 pm EST

With Michael Scholes

Weekend One has concluded of this 50-hour Master class (January 21st – 23rd) which reviewed how to formulate essential oils for esthetical and therapeutic purpose from a botanical, chemical, and logical prospective. The program focus was on how to choose essential oils by geographical location, individual constituents, botanical family origin, location in the plant, plant signature, color, therapeutic benefit and smell. In addition, dosages, percentages, costs and reality-based models for small and large-scale manufacturing were discussed and how to calculate cost of goods and profitability. Weekend One demonstrated the ability to combine what you know with your experience of what works using one’s intuition in the formulation.  Each student had the opportunity to make 13 blends for health and wellness, including blends for specific symptoms and conditions. Over 140 essential oils where made available for weekend one and more than a dozen floral waters were experienced. Laurie M. responded “I learned so much in only 3 days! Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience with us!” The goal of Weekend One was for each student to be able to choose specific essential oils, combine them in a safe manner with maximum effectiveness, and to add to unscented bases, in the appropriate dose, for the condition or desired effect.

Weekend Two (March 3rd – 5th) will be about adding to the foundation we have created so far. We will be moving away from first-aid blending and introducing emotional, subtle, spiritual and sacred blending, using alchemical principles that evoke change within. In addition, I will be teaching how to further fine-tune your blends with the introduction of absolutes, as well as enhancers, modifiers and equalizers. The importance of choosing specific carriers, emulsifiers and botanical bases will also be discussed. You will discover that any blend becomes much more in terms of the sum of the parts. It can be influenced by the order that the oils are added, as well as the energetic information and one’s purpose and intent. Numerology, as it relates to essential oils, will be discussed in relationship to blending. Finally, Weekend Two will review the art of perfumery with instructions on how to make transformational perfumes. Over 100 essential oils, and sacred oils, will be available for blending in the making of 12 of your own personal care products, including an environmental fragrance and personal perfume. The goal of Weekend Two is to be able to make dynamic blends through the use of combining what is seen and unseen in the making of formulations that smell incredible, work more energetically than physically, where change occurs after application and where order is restored.
