Essential oils are our first medicines and have been used by man for centuries for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits. They provide protection against predators and disease for plants--man uses that same protection to his advantage. Essential oils are the natural aromatic compounds found in many parts of plants.
This is a hands-on class. After a brief history, you will learn the various uses of essential oils. Then you actually use a variety of essential oil topically and aromatically, maybe even tasting a few.
Taught by Tess Lannigan, LMT, EqMT, AqMT, who has used essential oils for the last 24 years in her massage therapy practice.
Come early to shop the Greenville Farmer’s Market and chat with Tess.
