 I offer professional training material and knowledge that can be uniquely organized for a private workshop or group. I enjoy teaching small groups as well as, educating students & licensed professionals. 

 

Training sessions share research based data and interactive learning designed for a target audience and are typically shorter in time. Workshops center around activities like formulating an aromatherapy product with a particular health or emotional focus. 

 

As an educator, I am committed to providing research based education while promoting the ecological and safe use of essential oils and botanical  ingredients. 

I have been licensed as a skincare professional since 2017, I am a certified aromatherapist (meaning I have conducted research and completed 265 in person classroom hours of study including chemistry botany anatomy and physiology), I have a masters in counseling and twenty years teaching and facilitating inclusive and active learning environments. I've pursued end of life knowledge through certification in Death Midwifery. In October 2022, I will complete a year long program becoming ordained as an Animist Minister.

Training Topics

Using our Senses for Self Care

Let us begin with breath and greet our ears with sound, relaxing our senses with botanical offerings. This training looks at how to use our senses throughout the day and create caring moments of awareness in support of our body mind and soul. We will learn how Aromatherapy can stimulate or relax our nervous system. From Shiatsu to essential oils, with focus on our natural surroundings we will practice simple steps to care for our Self using sight, smell, taste, hearing and touch.

Essential Oils & Aromatherapy Practices for Traumatic Stress, Grief/Loss

Lets identify the impact of stress on the physical, emotional and spiritual body. And, lets talk about pairing botanical tools (aromatherapy) with your senses to balance the impact of physiological, emotional and spiritual stress. This is a training that shares tools and practices with first responders, chaplains, social workers, mental health professionals, healthcare services, employees from funeral and death industries, veterans and law enforcement...

 

Empowered Natural Beauty

Learn what to look for on a label, collect resources and applicable information to assist you in becoming empowered through your choices. Use your purchasing power as a reflection of your values, by supporting the health of the planet, and all the life forms it supports (special attention on plants, deforestation and endangered species used in skincare products and essential oils). Important information for anyone interested in using their consumer powers to support sustainability efforts using beauty and health products, botanical oils, essential oils and more.

Workshop Descriptions

How Plants Heal (Mind, Body & Spirit)

A species inclusive workshop centered on how we form relationships. This workshop can focus on specific plants, like plants that heal the body and evoke supportive emotions, or plants used for spiritual ceremony, such as smoke bundles. Through the practice of making a sacred object or botanical formulations for health, we will learn the importance of knowing a name (Genus and species), where plants grow and what eco systems they are a part of, as well as exploration of endangered species used in common retail products. Considering the healing power of plants, let us get to know more than just what plants can offer us and begin to explore what we might offer them in return. 

 

The Ceremony of Self Care

This is a terrific match for a group ready to learn and practice daily rituals of self care. If you are caring for a case load, patients, clients, a loved one, little one(s), professionally or personally; this workshop can be structured to meet the group need. We will discuss practices and tools for prioritizing our Self, our Body and our Mind. Practices can range from guided meditation, a written word exercise, and creating a self care ritual using essential oils. With humor, information and activities we will practice ways to create space and time to nurture your Self using your senses.

Workshops are priced on the size of group, the topic and cost for materials.  Let's discuss your ideas and group needs by scheduling a free consult.
