FREE Masterclass: Aromatherapy for Back-to-School Season

Aug 15, 2022

It’s back-to-school season! We’re all returning to school and the office, getting ready for exams, travel, and all the accompanying excitement… and, yes, stress. Many of us are still recovering from the stress brought on by COVID—and cold and flu season are just around the corner. Essential oils are perfect supports for a healthy, frugal lifestyle in this fast-paced world: they’re portable, easy to travel and study with, and effective allies when used properly.

Are you struggling to find the right information to help you create aromatherapy blends to support yourself and your family right now?

Research and chemistry can be intimidating, and there are so many blog posts, webinars, and people telling you to trust the information they provide that it’s hard to know what’s even accurate.

What would it be like to have a clear picture of how chemistry and research are the keys to blending safely and effectively—from recognized credible experts in the field?

Join us for this free masterclass on September 1, 2022 at 12:30 pm Pacific.

You'll discover how to use essential oil research and chemistry to get professional results from your aromatherapy blends for the back-to-school season.

Lemon (Citrus limon) is a perfect essential oil for any parent’s back-to-school toolkit.

Lemon essential oil is affordable and cheerful, and its therapeutic properties are ideal to support you and your family as you return to school or work.

We’ll show you the science behind lemon essential oil and how you can use it to make this transition time a smoother and healthier one for you, your family, and your friends. You’ll learn how to correctly store lemon essential oil, and why its extraction method matters to the safety and therapeutic goals of your blends.

You’ll learn how lemon essential oil can support back-to-school season, from easing stress for kids and adults to reducing common school-borne microbial issues like warts, lice, or bacteria (think dirty sports equipment!), and more.

You’ll get practical, research-based recipes using lemon essential oil that lend calming support for anxiety, support flagging energy, and support healthy immunity.
Learn these advanced skills:

  • why lemon (Citrus limon) essential oil should be in your back-to-school aromatherapy kit—and get recipes using lemon essential oil that support the special needs of back-to-school season for you and your family
  • 2 key factors that will improve the performance of your essential oil formulations
  • the therapeutic properties of the chemical constituent limonene, found in many citrus essential oils, and new research that has uncovered some of its bioactivity
  • when, why, and how to safely use steam distilled vs. cold-pressed lemon (Citrus limon) essential oil

  • the building blocks of essential oil chemistry and research
  • what you need to know about becoming a certified professional aromatherapist

Why this information matters to your blending

  1. Research and chemistry make your essential oil blends better… and safer. The field of aromatherapy is rapidly advancing in line with evidence-based research. Essential oils all contain bioactive chemical constituents which have been scientifically shown to have many therapeutic properties, and these findings continue to grow by the dozens annually. However, these chemical constituents carry important safety considerations, and this is a key factor in creating safe aromatherapy blends that are most appropriate for the conditions you’re addressing.
  2. You need to know how to store your essential oils safely, and chemistry is the key. Each chemical constituent in an essential oil has unique properties, though they can be grouped into “families” that share some common factors. Chemical families have their own physical properties which can tell us a lot about an essential oil’s safety and even how to store them correctly! For example, essential oils such as lemon that are rich in the constituent limonene—a constituent in the monoterpene family—have some of the shortest shelf lives. If they are not stored well, their bioactivity can decrease quickly.
  3. You need to understand the differences between the two types of lemon (Citrus limon) essential oil. Limonene is a heavily researched chemical constituent. But did you know that there are two types of limonene? And do you know why that matters? Extracting an essential oil can be done in many ways, and we often see that if the same plant part is extracted via different methods, their chemical profiles will differ. This is the case when lemon peel is extracted via steam distillation or expression (also known as cold pressed).
  4. Using essential oils wisely supports a healthy planet. We are sensitive to the many global environmental issues that are heavily impacting the overall health of our planet and the plants. Now more than ever, we need to use essential oils ethically and responsibly to help mitigate their overuse. Don’t forget: less is more when it comes to essential oils!

Are you thinking about going back to school too?

Perhaps you’re thinking about becoming an aromatherapy professional. Now that the summer is ending, you can take a little time for yourself and begin to find the information you’re seeking.

To be a certified aromatherapist, you must understand the botanical characteristics of essential-oil bearing plants, the chemistry of each essential oil, and the scientific evidence relating to its therapeutic properties of each essential oil—and, of course, the safety of each essential oil.

During this masterclass, we’ll share a brief snapshot of what will make you stand out as an educated aromatherapist, and what you will learn in our Professional Level Certification Program. We will also share a very special offer with you!

Knowing how to use essential oils is more important and easier than ever — as long as you know where to learn information from credible experts in the field.

We’ll show you how—and why—to use lemon essential oil to support a healthier, happier back-to-school season. And what you learn about aromatherapy research, chemistry, extraction methods, and safety will advance all of your work with essential oils.
