CHEMISTRY OF ESSENTIAL OILS
To you who have little or no background in chemistry, yet desire a basic understanding of essential oils, this class is for you. To you who may even fear chemistry and avoided it in school, fear no more. This class is for you. And to you who may have degrees in chemistry, even advanced degrees, this class is for you, too, because the unique composition and character of essential oils is not found in college textbooks, nor is it yet a part of the college curriculum of most university regimens. As you will discover, the properties of essential oils that bring healing and maintain health cannot be explained solely by science as we know it. The power of essential oils is more than chemistry.
HEALING OILS OF THE BIBLE
Ancient Scripture is full of hundreds of references to “precious” oils: Aloes, Cassia, Frankincense, Galbanum, Hyssop, Balm, Spikenard, Cedarwood, Myrrh, and many more. They were considered: “the best products of the land,” “the work of a skilled apothecary,” ”most holy,” and “treasured gifts”. This seminar will help clarify the valuable roles of essential oils in ancient and modern day health care and show how they are intricately designed by our Creator.
Vitaflex is an ancient healing modality that was rediscovered by Stanley Burroughs in the late 1920’s. Vitaflex is a digital pressure technique that activates neuro pathways, delivering benefits of the essential oils. The body has a self-regulating electrical system that Vitaflex stimulates.
Raindrop originated in the 1980’s through the research of D. Gary Young. Raindrop is a powerful, non-invasive tool integrating the art of aromatic science with the technique of Vitaflex and gentle applications of therapeutic grade oils on the feet and back. The purpose of Raindrop Technique is to stimulate every organ, muscle and bone at a cellular level bringing the body into structural and electrical balance, enabling the release of toxins wherever they may be. This may include those lodged in the mind and emotions. Applied VitaFlex class is a pre-requisite.
Is emotional baggage keeping you from being the person you were designed to be?
Clinical research shows that traumatic experiences are stored on a cellular level and have profound effects on one’s emotions and the physical state of the body. During an Emotional Release session, essential oil blends are both applied and inhaled. These blends are formulated for their unique ability to:
* Balance energies in the body and open the subconscious mind
* Promote emotional release of negative stored memories
* Program the mind with positive beliefs
C.A.R.E. Class Participants will acquire an understanding of how essential oils may facilitate clearing of negative emotional patterns through lecture, demonstration, and a “Break-Out” session.
