We may all come to aromatherapy for different reasons: a need to heal or find balance; to unplug and get closer to nature; to expand our community or simply inspire creativity. But whatever the reason, building a relationship with plants and aroma is always satisfying—and sometimes life-changing.
That’s the experience we want to share with you. We give you all the oils and tools you’ll need, plus a collaborative, hands-on learning environment; you bring an open mind and a willingness to explore.
"I just wanted to say thank you again for offering such a beautiful, informative, and inspiring course. I loved learning from you, and really connected with your way of teaching and with the oils themselves. They are so beautiful!”
—Jenn, Yoga Teacher and Natural Beauty Entrepreneur

We live in a time of binary distress—where the whole has been torn into parts. This workshop is intended to explore the female/male or yin/yang as a whole and how aromatherapy may support that view.
Plants don’t discriminate. They offer guidance to recipients, no matter their gender, race, nationality, or creed. Aromatic plants, the “less subtle” of the plants, are especially enthusiastic to communicate and share their messages of health and balance to whomever is accepting.
This workshop will explore the following themes:
- The physiology of sex: sexual development and how it is expressed through shared but varying levels of hormones.
- The sacredness of sex and sexuality.
- How sexual function and regulation of reproductive activity is mediated by the nervous and endocrine systems and how aromatics and aromatherapy relate to these processes.
- An approach to choosing essential oils to support sexual health.
After exploring these topics, you have been empowered to create your own blend of essential oils to use in an aromatic roller-ball applicator that you may use to support your lovely hormones and sexuality.
