Join me at the San Mateo library for a lecture on safely and effectively using essential oils for aromatherapy. Essential oils can provide many beneficial therapeutic benefits, but they also have the capacity to harm if not used properly. Learn how to engage with your sense of smell and use essential oils in a safe and supportive manner.
Bring out your creative side and learn to blend with essential oils. This is the "art" in aromatherapy, where you get to use your imagination and express yourself through nature's aromas. Each person connects differently with scents and there is no right or wrong way to blend. That is the beauty and freedom. It's about an intimate, emotional connection between you and the soul of aromatic plants - the essence - namely essential oils.
Join Frauke Galia, founder of FALK Aromatherapy, as she presents an introduction to aromatherapy and essential oils. “FALK Aromatherapy was founded on the understanding that nature is our ally and our partner in personal health and wellbeing. The aromatic plants that produce essential oils can support us in so many ways, both emotionally and physically. We encourage people to embrace the aromatic and therapeutic aspects of essential oils, but we want them to understand they have the power to heal and the capacity to harm.”
