Aroma-chemistry Gateway Workshop
When using essential oils and extracts as remedies you are targeting the physical body of the animal. It is imperative that you know the chemical families and essential oil components. This is direct aromatherapy, working with cell receptors, influencing inflammatory
mediators, engaging the body through an essential oil’s antioxidant, anti-microbial, or anti-fungal properties.
When you are working at the cellular level, affecting the internal systems of an animal, your knowledge must be exact and your awareness acute. The animal will lead you to the essential oil therapies it needs; it is your job as a healer to know the chemistry of the plants, their healing effects, proper applications, and interactions.
