Botanical Energy Medicine: Essential Oils, Subtle Aromatherapy & Flower Remedies
Aromatic medicine derived from plants and flowers has been used for thousands of years in ceremonial and healing practices throughout the world. Essential oils, with their etheric nature, are often seen as akin to the spirit or language of the plant. Today, the term Subtle Aromatherapy refers to the intuitive art and science of using essential oils and aromatics to affect healing and change in the human spirit and energy system. These beautiful plant and flower aromas and the energy they offer can deeply touch the spirit and emotions and encourage opening, repair, harmonizing, and release. In this aromatic exploration we will cover:
-How to integrate essential oils and other plant remedies into your own healing, or your work with clients.
-Working with the spirit and energy of plants, and calling them in for assistance.
-How certain essential oil aromas can help release deep-seated emotions or blockages, offer clarity, and inspire transformation, allowing the spirit to inhabit the body more fully.
-Recommendations for use, including best methods and dilution ratios.
