This course will identify how certain essential oils can bring about balance and harmony to the human being by supporting the hormonal system. Individual molecules will be explored that can be used daily to treat common problems such as PMS, stress, thyroid deficiency and much more. Using essential oils, carriers, hydrolats, skincare and relaxation techniques to preserve inner and outer beauty and peace. We will look especially at PMS and the menopause and will explore a holistic approach to both these issues, and how aromatherapy can help.
The hormonal content of certain essential oils will be explored along with methods of use and how much of each oil to use for the different areas of menopause. Treatment plans will be drawn up for individual needs and personal advice will be given if requested.
